Cultural Activities

Community Theatre

The Lamp-Lite Community Theatre, one of the largest in East Texas, has been serving the community for more than 35 years. A troupe of over 100 actors performs a variety of shows including comedies, drama, children’s theatre, holiday specials, and an annual musical. As a volunteer based organization they are always looking for talent on stage and behind the scenes. Acting workshops are held regularly. The playhouse comfortably seats 250 and offers year-round entertainment.

In 1971, the Lamp-Lite was formed with Sarah McMullen as founder and director. Its first home was the Christ Episcopal Church parish hall. The Lamp-Lite troupe joined, in 1976, with other local artists to form the City Spirit Arts Center which utilized space in the Phelan Warehouse in downtown Nacogdoches. For a year the troupe performed dinner theater productions and went on the road to perform in various East Texas cities. Through grants, volunteers and friends, the theater used today was created. Materials were taken from the old Phelan Warehouse and moved to the current location, on loop 224 at Old Tyler Road, where the new theater was constructed. On May 19, 1979, the Lamp-Lite Theatre opened at its new location with "The Last of the Red Hot Lovers," by Neil Simon.

Hospital Details

Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital is striving to become a “hospital without walls” — reaching out to citizens and community organizations to make Nacogdoches a healthier community. The hospital debuted a new 64-slice Toshiba CT scanner early in 2011, and will usher in 2012 by more than doubling the size of the Breast Care Center. It will launch a $40 million construction project for a new surgery center and labor and delivery unit, projected to be complete in 2013, when Memorial Hospital will celebrate its 85th anniversary.

Memorial Hospital founded the Healthy Nacogdoches Coalition to promote physical activity, healthy nutrition, tobacco cessation and prevention of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This organization helped the city secure Gold Recognition as a Heart and Stroke Healthy Community, making Nacogdoches one of only five cities in the state to reach the goal.

Early detection and quick response times are vital when a person suffers a stroke or a heart attack. Memorial Hospital’s dedication to the health of the Nacogdoches community was echoed in the investment of time, resources and energy necessary to become the first and only Joint Commission Certified Stroke Center in Deep East Texas. Memorial Hospital is actively pursuing a similar accreditation for the Chest Pain Center.

The future of medicine and the key to speedy patient recovery lies in skilled physicians offering precision surgery using breakthrough equipment. Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in Nacogdoches to offer the da Vinci® robotic surgery system for major surgeries such as prostatectomy and hysterectomy. Memorial Hospital is also the only hospital in East Texas offering balloon sinuplasty — a cutting-edge, minimally-invasive sinus surgery.

At Memorial Hospital, patients have been the focus for more than 80 years. First known as City Memorial, the hospital opened in 1928 with 28 beds. Now with 216 beds, Memorial has evolved into a sophisticated regional referral center, designated as the only Level III Trauma Center in this region by the Texas Department of Health.

Patients trust Memorial Hospital for high quality, innovative health care.

Women’s and Children’s Services
With the staff addition of Dr. Sheila Hill and Dr. Kim Schaus, both board certified Ob/Gyns, more choices are now available to Nacogdoches women. “Choose from a full slate of Ob/Gyns, certified nurse midwives, pediatricians and family practice specialists to bring top level care to your family. The birthing center at Memorial is one of the most family-centered, comfortable and attractive L&D programs in the East Texas area,” Hayward said.

Space-age technology- “Patient comfort and safety have been our focus for decades, as we’ve engineered a Medical Imaging Department unrivaled in Deep East Texas. Our most recent addition is PET/CT technology, which can determine, in a single scan, whether cancer exists and its exact location. PET/CT technology can also help with diagnosing and monitoring Alzheimer’s Disease,” stated Hayward.

Surgery and the Heart Program - With laser and laparoscopy capabilities and a separate gastrointestinal laboratory, Memorial provides all levels of surgery from the most minor tonsillectomy to major open-heart surgery. Memorial is one of this area’s “grandfathers” in the open-heart surgery field, with almost 20 years of outstanding outcomes. “We believe in the ‘gold standard’ of heart care - cardiac catheterization - as the best tool to accurately diagnose - and immediately treat - heart disease,” Hayward said.

For a complete list of services and information about Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital’s physicians, visit www.nacmem.org.

Quality patient care; nationally-recognized healthcare practices; positive clinical outcomes and advanced medical technology are just a few of the key attributes of Nacogdoches Medical Center. Quality is the cornerstone of everything at Medical Center and the hospital’s track record demonstrates the standard of care delivered in Nacogdoches.

Medical Center has maintained The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ through the years, demonstrating compliance with the most stringent standards of performance. The Daily Sentinel Readers’ Choice Awards recently named Medical Center “Best Hospital,” “Best Place to Have a Baby” and “Best Emergency Room.”

For more than 36 years, Medical Center’s commitment to quality has set the pace for outstanding innovation in patient care. Medical Center was the first East Texas provider of Brain Lab technology — a system that offers leading-edge precision in neurosurgery and sinus surgery designed for better results and improved outcomes. The sleep lab offers diagnosis and treatment of an array of sleep disorders. Medical Center also completed recent renovations and the installation of technologically advanced equipment in the hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab.

Medical Center’s Loma Laird Imaging and Cancer Center features some of the latest digital imaging equipment, providing higher quality information while offering shorter and less invasive exams. Medical Center also provides targeted IMRT radiation therapy treatments designed to precisely target cancer cells without harming surrounding tissue.
The Surgery Center of Nacogdoches was founded more than 11 years ago as the first multi-specialty surgery center in Nacogdoches. Today, 19 talented physicians partner with Nacogdoches Medical Center to provide convenient, easily-accessible services.
Medical Center’s dedicated Women’s Center offers quality services at every stage of life - from prenatal care and basic infant care to parenting and digital mammography.
“In keeping with the tradition of excellence, Medical Center continues to develop services and programs to meet the health care needs of the communities we serve,” said Gary Stokes, CEO. “Free monthly seminars educate people on how to take better control of their own health.”
Third Tuesday Testing offers a variety of free to low cost testing to identify potential health concerns. Community support groups are also offered for breast cancer survivors and diabetes patients.
