Board of Directors

As a 501c3 non-profit corporation, Palacios Community Medical Center (PCMC) is governed by a Board of Directors composed of members of our community – neighbors serving neighbors. The PCMC Board is currently composed of five Directors. These individuals give freely of their time and talents – they are not paid for their service – to help ensure that PCMC remains financially viable while providing high quality care to and for our community.

In 2019, the Palacios Community Medical Center entered into a management partnership with El Campo Memorial Hospital operating under Mid Coast Health Systems. Both hospitals maintain their own boards of directors as well as ownership of hospital assets.
