About the Hospital

Our Paris, Texas, acute-care hospital has come a long way since its inception in 1911. Fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the two campuses are licensed by the Texas Department of Health. In addition, Paris Regional Medical Center is a member of the Texas Hospital Association. The beginning of what was to eventually become Paris Regional dates to 1896 when the Sisters of Mercy operated St. Patrick’s Academy, a boarding school near downtown Paris, Texas. After several years of agonizing labor and severe tests of faith, six sisters reopened the facility as St. Joseph’s Infirmary on October 1, 1911.

In 1999, St. Joseph’s ownership changed when it became a part of the new CHRISTUS Health System, created as a result of the merger of the Incarnate Word Health System and the Sisters of Charity, Houston.

In August 2001, CHRISTUS St. Joseph’s Health System purchased the buildings, equipment, and certain services of the competing 210-bed McCuistion Regional Medical Center, owned at the time by Texas Health Resources. With the acquisition, CHRISTUS consolidated services of the two hospitals into one system.

Essent Healthcare, Inc. purchased CHRISTUS St. Joseph’s Health System in late December 2003 and took over operations on January 1, 2004, as Paris Regional Medical Center.

In November 2011, Essent Healthcare, Inc. merged with RegionalCare Hospital Partners, making Paris Regional Medical Center part of their healthcare system.

Our purpose is to treat everyone like family, providing the peace of mind that comes from receiving extraordinary care close to home.
