From Angleton Danbury Medical Center to UTMB Health Angleton Danbury Campus
Angleton Danbury Hospital District's (Est. 1967) mission was to provide a general hospital to serve the residents of Brazoria County. Angleton Danbury General Hospital opened its doors in 1969.
Changing the hospital's name in 1999 to reflect future growth, Angleton Danbury Medical Center remained home to a forward-moving Board of Directors and Hospital Administration team. Continuing their plan to meet the needs of the community as well as encompass
new healthcare arenas, the hospital district designed a state of the art Surgical and Cardiac Care Unit; again, embracing one of the nations' fast growing trends, outpatient surgery.
Continuing their forward move to growth, ADMC opened the Frank W. Stevens Center for Health and Wellness, offering the community a safe place to exercise and access educational material on a wide-range of health-related topics.
With the Houston corridor moving quickly into Brazoria County, strategic plans were made to accommodate the growth headed into the hospital district. With the support of the district's residents, a 22 million dollar expansion and renovation project that
impacted every patient care and service area on the campus, was approved. Breaking ground in August 2004 and completed in June 2006, from start to finish, Angleton Danbury Medical Center is a showcase for our community with many of the latest innovative
technologies and patients processes available.
In 2014, the Angleton Danbury Hospital District Board of Directors and
the University of Texas System Board of Regents approved moving forward
with a formal relationship between Angleton Danbury Medical Center and
the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. The effective date
of the agreement was Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014. Much work has been done to
integrate the organizations.
The goal is to strengthen the ability of the two organizations to
succeed in an accountable care environment while providing patients
access to high-quality care close to their homes.
Throughout the transition, all involved remained focused on the needs
of patients served by UTMB Health Angleton Danbury Campus. Patient care
was not interrupted, and excellent care continues to be provided for
the 60,000 residents in the region.
UTMB Health Angleton Danbury Campus continues to look into the communities' future and plan for their healthcare needs. It's a promise made yesterday, kept for today, and pledged for tomorrow.
