About Us:

Kimble Hospital is a 15 bed; licensed Critical Access Hospital nestled in the Texas Hill Country in Junction, Texas. We offer the quality of healthcare professionals in a state of the art facility you expect and deserve. Our out-patient services are designed to complement pre-operative or surgery follow-up and to enhance patient healing from serious illness that may limit your ability to travel out-of-town. We provide emergency and diagnostic services as well as acute care and recovery for in-patients. A Medicare approved Swing Bed Program provides rehabilitation or palliative care that patients may need. Outpatient mental health services are available to eligible Medicare patients.

Our state designated Level IV Trauma Emergency Department makes it a vital part of the community and is an added safety benefit for the thousands of people traveling I-10 each day. The history of Kimble Hospital is one of determination and civic pride by the citizens of Kimble County to provide healthcare close to home. The story began in 1958 and continues to unfold today as the citizens of Kimble County just celebrated the opening of a brand new hospital built to replace the outdated facility. In 2009, the members of the Kimble County Hospital District Board made an appeal to the citizens of Kimble County to pass a $16.9 million bond election to fund a new 30,500-square-foot hospital and 7,300-square-foot clinic. A ribbon-cutting to celebrate the new hospital was held in early October 2011 and staff and patients moved in shortly after that.

The hospital also operates a rural health clinic next door with a dedicated staff of healthcare professionals. The medical providers who deliver healthcare services to the community include Chief of Staff, Ben Udall, M.D.; Brenda K. Hinton, M.D.; Hayden Behling, PA-C; and Jennifer Johnson, PA-C at Kimble Hospital Rural Health Clinic and in private practice, Noe Martinez, M.D. The hospital administrator is Steve Bowen. Kimble Hospital is managed by Preferred Management Corporation and is operated by a Hospital District Board comprised of seven elected officials who meet monthly in a public forum.
