The Organization

  • OakBend Medical Center is the last remaining independent nonprofit hospital in the Greater Houston Area. They proudly serve Fort Bend County and surrounding communities at all their locations including their hospitals, emergency rooms, surgery centers, physical therapy clinics, physician offices, and many more.
  • OakBend Medical Center is passionately focused on patient-centered medicine. They have up ended the traditional nursing model, putting the patient in the driver’s seat when it comes to his or her plan of care. OakBend believes – and research shows – that your communication and cooperation have more to do with your outcome than anything they do.
  • Their focus on patient outcomes drives OakBend’s services. OakBend is home to some of the most advanced programs in Fort Bend County including their No Wait emergency rooms and the Jack and Billie Wendt Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) unit.

Research shows that reduced wait times in the emergency room and shorter hospital stays produce significant benefits for patients.
  • OakBend remains committed to developing the very best ways to care for their patients, ensuring a healthy future for generations to come.

The Community 

  • While this town south of Houston may be on the deep outskirts of town, it’s rich in culture, history, and adventure that you won’t find elsewhere.
  • From classic cigars and pioneer ranches to delicious ethnic cuisines and the best view of the stars you’ve ever seen, you’ll find that trippin’ through Richmond is like taking a trip across the past, present, and future of Texas.
  • At Brazos Bend State Park, which has been named “Home of the American Alligator,” the gators are hanging out on the trails and enjoying the park just like the tourists. It’s the best — and safest — way to get up close and personal with the scaly creatures. Be sure to hit up the Nature Center to learn more about these swamp gators and the other ecosystems and animals in the park.
  • The best place to get a Cup of Joe and learn a little bit about Richmond’s history is at Joseph’s Coffee & Cigars. This historic shop started in 1903 by the Joseph’s as a cart that sold candy and peanuts around town. Now more than 100 years later it’s run by 4th generation Michael Joseph who is carrying on the family tradition. It serves up delicious coffee and a hodgepodge of eclectic items from antique guns to English sporting goods.
