Area of Greatest Need

When you give to the area of greatest need in Brenham, your gifts could be used to support any of the following initiatives.

Emergency Department Renovation

The population in Texas is growing rapidly, and the Brenham community is no exception. With population growth comes increased demand for high-quality health care, particularly emergency care.

Today, the Emergency Department at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Brenham treats about 60 patients daily, even though the department was originally designed to accommodate 45 per day.

A 5,000 square-foot expansion will aloow staff to treat an additional 60 patients per day, or roughly 22,000 per year. Plans also include a convertible "safe room" to make sure patients with acute mental health issues are safe before they are transferred to an appropriate inpatient facility.


  • Private rooms will replace curtained bays, giving patients more privacy
  • Three new exam rooms (increasing from 10 to 13)
  • Two "fast track" rooms to treat less critical emergencies or conditions that can be treated quickly, helping to reduce wait times
  • Ability to treat twice as many patients daily
  • Expanded nurse's station
  • Revised workflow to increase efficiency
  • Convertible "safe room" to better serve mental health patients
