BBRHD, where we began and where we are going.

The District was created by acts of the 72nd Texas Legislature in 1991 where the Brewster County Hospital District and the Presidio County Hospital District were merged into the current Big Bend Regional Hospital District.  The 80th Texas Legislature consolidated and codified previously enacted legislation to create the existing enabling legislation of the District.   

The District was created to provide hospital and medical services for needy residents of the District a charge that is the basis for the hospital district.

On October 1, 2014 the District rolled out the newly branded Presidio-Brewster County Indigent Healthcare Program (PBCIHP) where significant changes were made in the administration of the indigent healthcare program that was the basis of the District.  The program saw significant growth thanks to the outreach provide by the newly created Patient Advocate positions.
