CCMH is a not-for-profit county hospital governed by a 5-member Board of Trustees appointed by Comanche County Commissioners.  

Memorial is the third-largest employer in Comanche County. With over 1,600 employees and an annual payroll budget of over $67 million, CCMH provides economic stimulation to the region.  CCMH is proud that for over half a century, it has continued the mission for which it was founded by providing nearly $40 million in annual charity and welfare care to the citizens of our community, while receiving just over $100,000 in annual county tax support.
