Located in southwestern Brazoria County, Texas, the Sweeny Hospital District was established by the Texas Legislature in 1963 after a 10-year community effort to expand health care into rural communities.  Since the time of its opening in 1965, Sweeny Community Hospital has continued to grow and expand its services offered to the West of the Brazos Community, while keeping true to the traditions that helped to found the hospital district. 

The Hospital District has grown to approximately 190 employees at locations in Sweeny, Brazoria, and West Columbia. The Hospital is a 24-hour operational critical access hospital providing both inpatient and outpatient healthcare services.  Licensed for 20 inpatient beds, Sweeny Community Hospital serves as a Level IV Trauma Center, has a dedicated surgical suite, and more than a dozen outpatient clinical services.
