JCMH’s mission is to serve the residents of Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas by providing excellent care while focusing on patient safety, ethical standards and community needs in a fiscally responsible manner.
Jackson County Memorial Hospital in Altus, Oklahoma, is a 99-licensed bed facility in the heart of historic southwest Oklahoma. Jackson County Memorial Hospital is the second largest employer in Jackson County following Altus Air Force Base. With over 800 employees, JCMH is growing its campuses with new services to enhance the health and well-being of its residents. A non-profit organization, JCMH is a trust authority, governed by a nine-member board of trustees. JCMH is accredited by The Joint Commission.
Comprehensive ancillary services include Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, Laboratory with blood banking services, Sleep Lab and Rehabilitation Services. Other top-rated services are the Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma, the JCMH Counseling Center, Home Health Products, a durable medical equipment retail store, Home Care, Hospice, and Tamarack Assisted Living Center – a 54-bed assisted living facility. Outpatient clinics include:
Women's Health Associates
JCMH Medical Clinic
JCMH FamilyCare Clinic of Mangum
Two Hospitalists are on staff to coordinate comprehensive inpatient care. Nursing ratios are progressive and continuous recruitment and job satisfaction are a priority.
The state-of-the art Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma on the JCMH campus provide the latest in radiation and chemotherapy treatment to patients throughout Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas. JCMH is proud to enter this new era in patient care.
The southwest Oklahoma lifestyle is a mixture of rural and small town living. Quartz Mountain Resort just north of Altus is home to the beautiful Quartz Mountain Lodge and the Twin Peaks Performance Hall, where special musical performances and the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute are held each summer. The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge east of Altus contains a myriad of outdoor activities surrounded by buffalo, long horn, elk and other wild animals in their natural habitat. Metropolitan cities such as Dallas/Ft. Worth, Oklahoma City and Amarillo, Texas, are an easy drive only a few hours away.
JCMH GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
In 2012, JCMH provided over $3 million dollars to the community. Broken down are the figures below:
Financial Assistance: $1,574,074
Unpaid Cost of Medicaid: $1,512,110
Community Health Improvement Services: $125,455
Health Professions Education: $387,245

Two other categories that are financially significant but not considered reportable as a community benefit are the Unpaid Cost of Medicare, which is the difference between the amount Medicare paid the hospital compared to the cost of caring for Medicare patients, and the hospital’s Bad Debt, the cost of hospital services not collected from patients. These total an additional $4,060,897.
We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the residents of Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas as the provider of quality health care.
