LUMBERTON, HARDIN COUNTY - Altus Health Care Management Services has opened its new $10 million, 40,000-sf ER center located at 137 N. LHS Dr. The health care facility is the first of its kind in 14 years in Hardin County since the closing of the hospital in Silsbee.

Initially, the hospital only has four beds for patients, but will offer most of the same services offered at other hospitals, according to Kevin Herrington, regional executive vice president at Altus.

“Our initial focus is going to be ER care,” he said. “We’ll have around 40 employees total, including board-certified physicians, ER trained staff, nurses, X-ray technicians, cardiovascular technicians, and laboratory technicians. Anything that happens at a hospital ER can be handled here.”

Other features include an 18-wheeler-powered generator able to supply the whole building during power outages, a triage room, a pediatrics room, an ultrasound room, a kitchen, a nurses’ station, and an additional 10,000 sf available for expansion.

Approximately 10,000 sf of space rented by Southeast Texas Medical Associates Clinic is able to serve around 200 patients a day.
