Memorial Medical Center - Livingston

 

Since Memorial Medical Center - Livingston opened its new facility in July 2000, the hospital has provided emergent and acute care to thousands of area residents.

The hospital specializes in critical access care with its 24/7 emergency room and diagnostic services, which includes MRI, CT, and X-Ray scanning. Additionally, the hospital has a fully integrated women's center that offers obstetrics and gynecology care, plus digital mammography. The latest addition to its service line is a new Sleep Disorders Center, which is under the medical leadership of Dr. Robert Fayle, a board certified neurologist.

Currently, the hospital is home to more than 30 physicians who specialize in primary care, internal medicine, pediatrics, cardiology, infectious diseases, rheumatology and nephrology.

In 2007, the hospital opened two floors in its new bed tower. These floors are home to medical surgical rooms and a new intensive care unit. The 160,000-square-foot tower was designed by local physicians and nurses to be an active part of a patient's healing process. From the lighting to the carpeting, wood flooring, paint and new bedding, nurses and physicians designed a facility to maximize the healing process.

With the capacity to open 200 additional patient rooms, a highly skilled medical staff, and a talented and knowledgeable group of nurses and technicians, Memorial Medical Center - Livingston is a premiere hospital located in one of the fastest growing retirement communities in Texas.

Avoiding Sexual Assault Crimes Victims


As more sexual assault convictions occur, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) at Memorial Medical Center - Livingston are providing information to protect community members and prevent these crimes. According to the U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey, a person is sexually assaulted every 2 minutes in the United States.

"Most times we think of a sexual predator as someone we don't know. We even focus on teaching our kids stranger danger," said Connie Blalock, RN and SANE Coordinator at Memorial. "In fact, eighty percent of perpetrators in sexual assault cases are by a close family friend or relative of the victim."

Sexual assault in children may go undetected until the child makes an outcry. An outcry is when a child shares their victimization story with another person. Many victims do not have physical trauma because the perpetrator doesn't want anyone to know. While building trust with the victim, SANE nurses accumulate any physical evidence along with the child's history recollection. Read the press release.
