About Hendrick Health

Headquartered in Abilene, Texas, Hendrick Health is a healthcare system owned and directed by a local, volunteer board since its founding in 1924 as a not-for-profit hospital in response to a community need for quality healthcare. Throughout the decades, the hospital has grown with the community, offering a wide range of comprehensive healthcare services to West Central Texas.

In 2020, Hendrick Medical Center became Hendrick Health and expanded to a three-hospital system—Hendrick Medical Center and Hendrick Medical Center South in Abilene; and Hendrick Medical Center Brownwood in Brownwood. Hendrick Health also includes Hendrick Clinic, a multispecialty medical group of physicians and other advanced professional providers. Today, Hendrick Health has more than 100 service locations and serves 24 counties.

Providing the strength of a complete system of health services, Hendrick continues to offer aggressive, innovative treatments and preventive healthcare measures that include cardiovascular care, neurology and neurosurgery, neonatal and pediatric intensive care, orthopedics, women's health and cancer services.

Community involvement is important to Hendrick, not just from a healthcare perspective. Staff and employees know what it means to give back. They help raise funds and give their time to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, The United Way, Meals on Wheels and many other organizations.

Hendrick is an institution where people can feel a strong sense of belonging – an advanced medical provider the people of the region can call their own. Hendrick Health is affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas, and people of all ages and races receive precision care every day, regardless of the way they are able to pay.

Hendrick Health was founded by pioneering West Texans who believed in working together for better health. That legacy lives on today at Hendrick through medicine, ministry and research.
