Hospital Description

Located in Amarillo, Texas, the Northwest Texas Healthcare System is a leader in Heart, ER, and Children’s Care for the Texas Panhandle. The facility boasts a 495-bed acute care and medical center, providing medical care to the communities in North Texas since 1924. Northwest Texas Healthcare System is a Joint-Commission-certified Advanced Primary Stroke Center and Advanced Level III Trauma facility. The Northwest Children’s Hospital offers more than 40 pediatric subspecialties, using progressive medical services and advanced technology.

Amarillo, Texas is the largest city in the Texas Panhandle. Once proclaimed the “Helium Capital of the World” for its most productive helium fields, the city has another appropriate nickname, “The Yellow Rose of Texas.” Amarillo is home to one of the largest meat-packing areas in the U.S. as well as the only nuclear weapons assembly facility in the country, Pantex. The Cadillac Ranch and the Big Texan Steak Ranch draw many roadtrip sightseers to the area. Amarillo is known for its unpredictable weather patterns, being relatively flat and dry due to the lack of developed drainage. Amazingly enough, there’s actually an underground mountain range known as the Amarillo Mountains that were discovered by pioneer oilmen, the tallest underground peak being 2,500 feet. The downtown area did experience some economic deterioration through the years, but recent efforts have been made by partnerships between the government and community organizations to revitalize the downtown areas. Amarillo is a temperate semi-arid climate, with possible blizzards during the winter and hot, dry summers, with an average of 48 days per year during which thunder and lightning is reported.
