A treasured hospital for a “Texas Treasure”
Founded in 1946 as Franklin County Hospital, ETMC Mount Vernon began its affiliation with the East Texas Medical Center Regional Healthcare System in 1988. Since that time, we have recruited physicians and invested in equipment and facility upgrades to better meet the healthcare needs of Franklin County residents.
ETMC is proud to serve the residents of Mount Vernon, one of only nine Texas Cities to be named a ‘Texas Treasures’ city by the wife of our governor.
Today’s ETMC Mount Vernon
Today, we provide a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services. Our 24-hour emergency department is designated a Level IV trauma center by the state of Texas.
We are home to the ETMC First Physicians clinic in Mount Vernon, offering primary care for your entire family, as well as the services of visiting specialists.
ETMC also provides a variety of other medical programs in Franklin County, such as ETMC Home Health and ETMC EMS.
