The Sebree Medical Center first opened on June 25, 1984, following a community-wide fundraising campaign. The campaign was organized through the Henderson Regional Hospital Foundation (HRHF) in great cooperation with the Sebree Medical Center Board of Directors and the Sebree community. Upon completion, the facility was dedicated in memory of Brenda Lee Brooks, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Texal Brooks. Mr. Brooks served as Chairman of the Sebree Medical Center Board of Directors and major contributor to the fundraising campaign. The HRHF has maintained the medical facility and ensured physician services at that location for the past 27 years.
