About Midland Health First

The vision for Midland Health is to make Midland the healthiest community in Texas. Part of our Healing Mission is to do our best to improve the health and well-being of our community. Check this page regularly to stay up-to-date on our community health initiatives, including our community garden project, whole-food plant-based nutrition, and health & wellness events happening in Midland.


Midland Health Community Garden

Want to make a difference? So do we. We're starting from the ground up with a dream to create healthy dietary options for everyone in the Midland community. We have built a community garden right on the Midland Memorial Hospital West Campus grounds, at 4214 Andrews Highway.

Help our dream of a healthier Midland take root. Visit our Community Garden page or call (432) 221-1185 for information about renting a plot, volunteering, and other ways you can get involved.


Whole-food, Plant-based Nutrition

On April 2, 2016, Midland Health hosted the first ever Food Is Medicine seminar at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center. Over 500 attendees learned how a plant-based diet can prevent and reverse chronic disease, how exercise plays an important part of a healthy lifestyle and how to shop and cook on the plant-based diet. This event led to the formation of a new non-profit, called Healthy City, and they now host Food Is Medicine annually. 

The 2019 Food Is Medicine seminar is scheduled for Saturday, April 13th. Learn more at
