Freestone Medical Center opened its doors in 1947 as Freestone County Cooperative Hospital. The original facility underwent a number of expansions and renovations over its first 25 years. Then in 1975, a new facility was constructed and opened under the name Fairfield Memorial Hospital. More than 1,000 community members attended the grand opening festivities.
In 2010, we began a three-phase construction and renovation project. Phase I involved the expansion and renovation of the hospital’s emergency department, which was completed in the fall of 2011.
Phase II, which was dedicated in the fall of 2012, added 11,000 square feet. It includes a new front entry and lobby, as well as physician office and clinic space. Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, outpatient registration and an administrative suite are also housed in the new wing.
Phase III construction included a new six-room north wing, remodeling of the facility’s core, and remodeling of the east patient wing, completed in the spring of 2014.
Thanks to continuing support from the community and the local hospital district, we serve Freestone County and surrounding communities by providing a wide array of medical services including a 24-hour emergency department designated as a level IV trauma center, lab, imaging, inpatient care and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation.
