Palestine Regional Medical Center
Welcome to Palestine, a graceful and romantic city nestled among the pines and dogwoods of east Texas and brimming with rich heritage, rolling hills, scenic waterways, Victorian homes and an antique shopping paradise.
Serving residents of Anderson and surrounding counties, Palestine Regional Medical Center is a 150-bed hospital providing inpatient and outpatient services at its acute care facility, rehabilitation hospital, Birth Place maternity care center and a number of physician practices representing an expansive range of medical specialties.
Palestine is the second oldest city in Texas, with more than 1,600 historical sites. Educational opportunities abound in the community, including two school districts, Trinity Valley Community College, a campus of the University of Texas at Tyler, and a number of other colleges and universities within driving distance. The Palestine Community Theater, Palestine Civic Center and Palestine Public Library help guide the city’s cultural scene, and the Spring Dogwood Trails Festival and Texas Hot Pepper Festival are annual highlights.
Just 20 miles north of town, the 25,000-acre Lake Palestine offers a multitude of opportunities to fish, sail, camp or simply relax. Davey Dogwood Park and Palestine Community Forest contain a combined 900 acres of beautiful nature to explore. Train enthusiasts can take a ride on the Texas State Railroad, an 1896 train pulled by an original steam locomotive through a 30-mile tour of east Texas forest. And the Palestine YMCA offers a full range of activities for the whole family.
