Operating a hospital in Chambers County was identified as a vital need in the 1950s. The hospital is available to everyone and while there may be some who don’t use it right now, they may need it in the future. When critical care is needed, seconds count. The emergency room treats accident and sudden illness victims from all economic brackets and illness and accidents happen to the propertied as well as those who have none. The health of the county has been more secure, epidemics have been curtailed and prevented and medical advances have been made. Thanks to the foresight of the community more than 70 years ago, countless lives have thus been saved since the hospital was built.

In addition to keeping our community safe, the hospital provides economic stability. Not only is it a source for jobs, but it helps people get well enough again to go back to work. Renters also help landlords pay property taxes.

The hospital district is a taxing entity created by a community, authorized to deliver healthcare services, such as operating hospitals and delivering physical, social and mental programs and services to help people stay healthy. The tax rate is set after the CEO finalizes the budget based on current spend and projections to increasing volumes and services. From there, the CEO provides a recommendation to the board and the board decides to accept, reject or amend the budget. Current tax rates can be seen here. The board sets the tax rate after reviewing and evaluating the CEO’s recommendation. The maximum set by law is 75 cents per $100 valuation. No sales tax is collected for the hospital district.

Taxes are collected through Tax Assessor Denise Hutter, P.O. Box 519, Anahuac, TX 77514. She can be reached at 409.267.2763.

Chambers Health Announces 31% Tax Decrease

The historic tax rate reduction is the largest single tax decrease in the history of the hospital district and less than a year under the new CEO’s leadership.
