Riceland Medical Center

Riceland Medical Center (previously Winnie Community Hospital), is a privately owned critical access hospital located in Chambers County, Winnie, Texas. Governed by Texas state law, the staff at Riceland Medical Center is not only dedicated to continuing to provide quality care to our own community, but also for our outlying neighbors. At Riceland Medical Center, excellence in-patient care is possible because we do not settle for anything less than the best care and services delivered, not just to our patients, but also to their families. We hope to impress you, not only with the quality of our services, but also with our dedication to creating a compassionate environment with hometown customer service.



A patient is admitted to Observation for a condition that is expected to require hospital care and monitoring for less than 24 hours, or it is not clear whether the condition will require the higher level of Acute Care.  Patients of all ages are admitted to Acute Care when they need close monitoring and acute treatment.  Medical and nursing interventions are performed often to treat the patient.


We at Riceland provide a Swing Bed Program to patients who require some strengthening prior to returning home.  Swing bed (or Skilled Nursing Care) is a Medicare program designed to provide additional inpatient care to those needing extra time to heal or strengthen before returning home.  The term “swing bed” came from the idea that the patient will “swing,” or transition, from inpatient acute care through the program to return home to the same level of independence prior to entering the hospital.
