ATTENTION!!

As you may have noticed, RICE MEDICAL CENTER & RICE MEDICAL ASSOCIATES have put in place extra precautions for all patients and our employees.  We have and will continue to increase these precautions if we believe it the best course of action.

All persons entering Rice Medical Center and Clinics are being asked to come with their own masks, whether homemade or purchased

Effective May 01, the Texas Medical Board’s new rule states that:

A mask must be worn by both the patient and physician or the physician’s delegate when in proximity of the patient (meaning less than a 6-foot distance between the patient and the physician or the physician’s delegate)

Click here for Notice and Compliance Requirements Concerning COVID-19 Minimum Standards of Safe Practice

In the media section below are some helpful links on how to make masks at home.

RMC Hospital

  • Everyone entering the hospital must be screened, including travel history, symptoms, and current temperature
  • If cleared, a wrist-bracelet will be applied
  • 1 visitor per patient is permitted in the hospital at a time
  • The bracelet may be worn all day thereby, avoiding the need for re-screening.
  • The bracelet must be removed by hospital staff prior to exiting on their final visit of the day.

RMA Clinics

When you arrive, please call the clinic
(Eagle Lake 979-234-2551 or East Bernard 979-335-4433)

  • Call the clinic, give them your cell number and wait in your vehicle
  • When the nurse is ready for you, you will be called at that number
  • She will meet you at the front door and escort you to the treatment room.

Thank you for your patience as we all make our way through these extremely unusual times.

COVID-19 Vaccine Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Fact Sheets for Recipients and Caregivers

For each COVID-19 vaccine authorized under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that vaccine recipients or their caregivers are provided with certain vaccine-specific EUA information to help make an informed decision about vaccination. This is accomplished by providing a an EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers. The Fact Sheet is similar in purpose and content to vaccine information statements (VISs) for licensed vaccines but differs in that the EUA Fact Sheet is specific to each authorized COVID-19 vaccine, is developed by the manufacturer of the vaccine, and is authorized by the FDA. 

Moderna EUA Fact Sheet (English)
Moderna EUA Fact Sheet (Spanish)
Janssen EUA Fact Sheet (English)

RMA COVID-19 Vaccine Consent Form

Provides registration information and questions to help determine if there is any reason you should not receive a COVID immunization injection.

RMA Covid-19 Vaccine Consent Form (English)
RMA Covid-19 Vaccine Consent Form (Spanish)

ImmTrac2 Registry Consent Form

Registry for vaccines to assist clinics and hospitals.   For example, if you go to an Emergency Room for a cut, they can look up when you last received a tetanus vaccine which could prevent an unnecessary injection. 

ImmTrac2 Registry Consent Form

CDC’s V-Safe

V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins AFTER you receive your COVID-19 vaccination.  Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting the vaccine.  Depending on your answers, someone from CDC may call to check on you.  And v-safe will remind you to get you second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you need one.

We encourage individuals to seek out other vaccine sites and get on their waiting lists as well.   Like most other providers across the State, we don’t know when we’ll be allocated vaccines, so we urge patients to grab the first opportunity presented to them.  Again, you do not have to be one of our current patients, we will gladly add any individual to the list who wants to be included.  

Please note: Regardless of how many doses received &/or how frequent any future allotments, anyone 18 years of age or older is eligible for vaccination.

Message from James D. Janek

Welcome to Rice Medical Center and Rice Medical Associates.  Collectively, the hospital, clinics, physicians, staff and boards are dedicated to partnering with the surrounding communities to put in practice our motto: “Our Family Caring for Yours.”  We are honored to be partnered with area individuals, families, schools, places of worship, first responders and businesses in the goal of improving and enhancing the quality of life for all.  Our contribution is in providing life-improving and life-saving health care services to all in need and, equally important, to your loved ones.  Our mission is not accepted lightly and we pledge to continuously strive to meet and exceed your, and your family’s, health care needs.

In my decades of experience, never before have I had the pleasure of working with an organization with such an experienced, professional, functional and tenured hospital district board.  The medical staff represents another unique gift to those of the Rice Hospital District and surrounding areas.  The medical staff is extremely stable with most having worked here for decades.  Dr. Russell Thomas was awarded Physician of the Year by the Texas Academy of Family Practice Physicians.  Years earlier, his father, Dr. Raymond Thomas was awarded the same award.  The hospital had the first emergency department in the State of Texas to be designated as a Level IV Trauma Center.  Rice Telemedicine represents a robust remote access program improving access to specialists in many different disciplines.  The nursing and support staff are long-term, dedicated professionals.  When you visit Rice Medical Center or one of the Rice Medical Associates clinics, you will see familiar faces, warm smiles and caring attitudes.

You will see…Our Family Caring for Yours.

Our Hospital

Rice Medical Center is a Critical Access Hospital with inpatient and outpatient medical and surgical services. The hospital also provides 24 hour emergency service coverage, a variety of specialty clinics, and a swing bed unit program. RMC has the latest state of the art radiographic technology and surgical equipment, as highlighted in our description of departmental services.

Rice Medical Center is a district hospital and entered a management agreement with Critical Access Healthcare (CAH). CAH was formed in 2007 to bring unique solutions to Hospital Districts and governmental entities related to rural community healthcare needs. This new partnership enables the hospital to provide enhanced programs and services, staffing, even more updated technology, and new medical equipment and facilities for the patients we serve.

In addition to our hospital staff, RMC has a committed number of volunteers, both in the Pink Ladies, our auxiliary, and the Rice Medical Center Employee Volunteers. Both of those groups give countless hours of their time and money to support the hospital and its services. Without their efforts, as well as the committed involvement of our locally elected Board of Directors, the hospital would not have been able to make many of the continual improvements our patients enjoy today.

Whether you are coming to the hospital for the first time or have been a long-time supporter, we strive to make your experience here one of compassion and excellence. We not only hope that you receive the best care that we can provide, but that you also make it a point to tell your family, friends, and neighbors about RMC. We are here to serve your healthcare needs!

Rice Medical Center Auxiliary

On September 27, 1967 the Eagle Lake Community Hospital Auxiliary was organized in the home of Carey Shuart. 43 women attended that public meeting and 23 became active members with 10 inactive members. On November 06, 1967 the Auxiliary adopted its first set of bi-laws and setup a Memorial Fund to be used to purchase useful items for the hospital.

Money that is given to the Memorial Fund is used ONLY for items for the hospital; never for salaries or expenses. We operate the Gift Shop here at Rice Medical Center and we also have a Cookbook for sale, “Cook’s Tour #2”, for $10.

Cook's Tour #2 Cookbook
Cook’s Tour #2 Cookbook

All proceeds go toward the purchase of items for the Hospital.

Our volunteers have faithfully served the hospital through many changes. Our medical doctors are our personal friends and we have seen some of these good friends go on to their Heavenly Father. We have served through a new hospital being built and the name changes, as well. Through all of this, our volunteers have donated hundreds of thousands of hours to our hospital and community.

So who wants to become a ‘Pink Lady’?

We felt that if we were to attract volunteers of both sexes then we needed a name change and it has not been easy to break old habits. We are now the Rice Medical Center Auxiliary.

The function of the Auxiliary varies as the need arises. We volunteer to add to the comfort of the patients and to assist the nurses and staff in any way possible.

As volunteers, we want to serve and hope we can make the hospital a little more pleaseant through our service.

We are in need of more volunteers…

If you would like to be a part of this wonderful organization, our dues are $5.00 per year and there are plenty of opportunities for you to help.

"Our Family Caring for Yours"​

The Employee Volunteer organization was formed in the early 1990’s when the employees wanted to do something to help the hospital with renovation and to purchase needed equipment which, due to financial conditions at the time, the hospital was unable to do.

The group has fundraisers during the year to raise funds for renovation and to purchase equipment. They also provide scholarships for Rice CISD Seniors, East Bernard ISD Seniors and Brazos ISD Seniors that are planning to enroll in a health related field.

DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING

Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology Services include X-rays, Ultrasounds, CAT Scans, MRIs, Digital Mammograms and also perform special procedures that consist of biopsies, aspirations, thoracenthesis, paracenthesis, needle localization, barium procedures, arthrograms, myelograms, and some vascular studies.

Rice Medical Center has a new CAT Scan Unit. The GE Multislice 16 Slice Lightspeed CAT Scan has improved image quality, smaller slice thicknesses that gives more detailed information to the Radiologist and faster scan times.

We utilize a Digital Radiography (DR) system which uses x-ray-sensitive plates that directly capture data during the patient examination, immediately transferring it to a computer system without the use of cassette. The advantages include time efficiency, the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also, less radiation can be used, allows for immediate image preview and availability, as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display quality of the image. 

From the DR Console the images are sent to our PACS system (Picture archiving and communication system) which stores  the images on a server and allows the Radiologist and Physicians to view them on any computer. Along with Xrays; Mammograms, CAT Scans, MRIs and Ultrasounds are tied into the PACS. Ordering physicians on staff at Rice Medical Center are also able to view their patient films over the web on our secure site from their office.

"Our Family Caring for Yours"

SLEEP STUDY

What is a Sleep Study?

“The study is a safe, painless and simple evaluation of how your body functions during sleep. It is performed by a registered sleep technician. The data, recorded while you are sleeping, is later reviewed by a board certified sleep physician. This may be completed in one night depending on your results or if the physician feels that you need to be treated with a sleep therapy device, another sleep study may be scheduled so data can be collected while using the sleep device.”

Sleep Disorders

What is...? What are...?

If you have the symptoms described in the documents above, please contact your local physician for a referral to Rice Medical Center for a sleep study

What to expect…

“When you arrive for your study you will be directed to your room and provided explanation of the sleep study process. There will be a questionnaire to fill out along with other forms to be completed. The sleep technician will attach sensors to parts of your body such as your scalp, forehead, chest, legs and index finger. The sensors are painless and are attached using temporary adhesive/gel. Elastic bands may also be placed around your chest and abdomen to measure your breathing. The sensors are connected by wires to a computer that records your data. You are still able to move around in bed because the wires are small. After this is all applied you can watch television, read a book, or lie in bed until you fall asleep. You are usually out of the lab by 6 a.m. or 7 a.m. the following morning.”

WOUNDCARE

Dr. Russell Thomas Jr, DO in association with Restorix Health and an experienced nursing staff provide specialized, personal care with an approach to wound care treatment which is aggressive and comprehensive, coordinating traditional and advanced therapies that aid and accelerate the healing process.

Our center is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of physicians and nurses with advanced training in wound care.

A wound that is not healing properly may be complicated by underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems or previous radiation treatment. Sometimes, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem because the body’s normal healing process is affected.

Other types of hard-to-heal wounds result from pressure, trauma or infection. Non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.

We treat all wounds associated with, but not limited to:
  • Diabetic Foot Ulcers
  • Venous Ulcers
  • Surgical Wounds
  • Traumatic Wounds
  • Aterial Ulcers
  • Compromised Skin Grafts and Flaps
  • Crush Injuries

We utilize best clinical practices that begin with a thorough patient evaluation and diagnostic testing to determine wound etiology. An individualized care plan is then developed using evidence-based therapies that are highly effective in facilitating the healing process.

If you think you could benefit from this program,
please have your Physician make a referral to us by calling:

HOSPITAL PRICING

TRANSPARENCY

Rice Medical Center Standard Charges

Rice Medical Center Shoppable Services

The prices listed in these document above are current for January 01, 2021 but are subject to change. Some prices listed are average prices for select services.

If you would like an estimate for a service not listed below, please call 979-234-5571.

What is included in these prices?

Prices include Rice Medical Center’s equipment and staff.

What is NOT included in these prices?

Prices do not include physician/provider professional fees such as anesthesiologist, pathologist, or radiologist.

Will my final costs be different than what is listed here?

The amount you may owe can vary due to different circumstances. These may include:

  • Additional testing, medications, services or procedures ordered
  • The procedure planned may not be the procedure performed based on your physician’s assessment
  • If you have insurance, your insurance company will determine the final amount you have to pay due to your deductibles, coinsurance or out of pocket limits

 

DISCLAIMER AND EXPLANATION FOR STANDARD HOSPITAL CHARGES

This hospital determines its standard charges for patient services with the use of a chargemaster or similar system, which is a list of charges for the components of patient care that go into every patient’s bill. These are the baseline rates for services provided at this hospital.

The chargemaster is similar in concept to the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) on a vehicle. It is the starting price of each service performed and goods consumed associated with the individual patient’s treatment. The chargemaster rates are updated from time to time to accurately reflect the hospital’s expenses to operate.

Standard charges shown in the documents do not necessarily reflect what a patient may pay. Government insurance plans such as Medicare and Medicaid do not pay the chargemaster rates, but rather have their own set rates which hospitals are obligated to accept. Commercial insurance payments are based on contract negotiations with managed care payors and may or may not reflect the standard charges. Patients without commercial insurance or not covered by a government health care plan should contact the hospital prior to a procedure to discuss charges, alternative pricing, and payment terms.
