About Medical Center Health System

70+ Years of High-Quality Medical Services in Odessa, TX

Medical Center Hospital (MCH) has proudly served Ector County and the surrounding 17 counties of the Permian Basin for over 70 years. We’ve come a long way since we opened our doors in 1949, growing from a small county hospital into a prosperous 402-bed regional medical center serving over 100,000 patients annually. While we’ve seen many changes over the years, some things have remained unchanged. We are still the only full-service hospital in the region, and we always strive to deliver the best care possible for the people of the Permian Basin.
