Agency History

The Bureau of State Health Planning and Resource Development was created in 1975 after the Governor designated the Texas Department of Health Resources (later, the Texas Department of Health) as the State Health Planning and Resource Agency in compliance with federal Public Law 93-641, the National Health Planning and Resource Development Act of 1974 and H.B. 2164, Texas Health Planning and Development Act. The Bureau performs all health planning and resource development functions on the state level and is charged with developing an annual State Health Plan and an annual State Medical Facilities Plan. Development of the State Health Plan includes working with the health system agencies in the state, designated health related state agencies, the Statewide Health Coordinating Council, and other interested public and private entities and individuals. The major functions carried out by the Bureau include data collection, analysis, and dissemination, and health plan development and implementation.

The Medical Facilities Planning Division of the Bureau has undergone several name changes. The Division was initially known in 1946 as the Hospital Survey and Construction Division; next, as the Division of Hospital Services; then, from 1968 to 1975 as the Health Facilities Construction Section; and is now the Medical Facilities Planning Division. Despite the name changes, its major responsibility has remained the same: to survey, plan and construct hospitals and other health-related facilities in Texas in conjunction with the federal Hill-Burton Hospital Construction Program.

The Hill-Burton program has, since 1946, made federal matching funds available for construction, additions and modernization of hospitals and related community health facilities based on a system of priority needs. The Medical Facilities Division approves completed plans and specifications for Hill-Burton projects and guides the process of application and design development for each project.

The Division also prepares and administers the annual State Medical Facilities Plan, which serves to coordinate the planning and construction of health care facilities where the need is greatest. The Division also provides consultative services to the Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation for guidance in developing their plan for construction of mental health facilities, and participates in areawide planning for hospital facilities.

The Division of Health Planning has had the responsibility since 1975 to develop the state's health resources to serve the needs of every community. This division has also undergone a name change, previously being known as the Planning and Resources Development Division. A major part of the division's work was to coordinate the twelve regional Health Service Areas (HSAs) established by the Legislature in 1975. Each multi-county Health Service Area was charged with developing long-range and short-range plans for the improvement of its region's health facilities and resources.

This division also absorbed, in 1975, the functions of the Health and Human Resources Division of the Office of Information Services in the Governor's Office. This office had been involved in health planning and its duties and records were transferred to the Department of Health when the 1975 law went into effect. For more information on the Health and Human Resources Division of the Office of Information Services and its records, see the Governor's Office finding aid in the State Archives search room.

Scope and Contents of the Records

Records in this accession include quarterly reports by the Commissioner of Health; minutes and agendas from Board of Health meetings prepared by the Medical Facilities Planning Division; and administrative, correspondence and subject files from the Medical Facilities Planning Division and the Division of Health Planning of the Bureau of State Health Planning and Resource Development. These files are dated 1945-1979 and include Department of Health intra-agency memos; correspondence with other state agencies and the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare; and construction plans, drawings and specifications of health facilities in Texas. Health planning and health facilities planning and construction were part of these divisions duties under the Hill-Burton Hospital Construction Program.

To prepare this preliminary inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.

The Medical Facilities Planning Division of the Bureau of State Health Planning and Resource Development (Texas Department of Health) was initially known in 1946 as the Hospital Survey and Construction Division; next, as the Division of Hospital Services; then, from 1968 to 1975 as the Health Facilities Construction Section. Its major responsibility is to survey, plan and construct hospitals and other health-related facilities in Texas in conjunction with the federal Hill-Burton Hospital Construction Program. The Hill-Burton program has, since 1946, made federal matching funds available for construction, additions and modernization of hospitals and related community health facilities based on a system of priority needs. The Medical Facilities Division approves completed plans and specifications for Hill-Burton projects and guides the process of application and design development for each project. The Division also prepares and administers the annual State Medical Facilities Plan, which serves to coordinate the planning and construction of health care facilities where the need is greatest. The Division also provides consultative services to the Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation for guidance in developing their plan for construction of mental health facilities, and participates in area-wide planning for hospital facilities.
Types of records include minutes and agenda from Texas Board of Health meetings; and administrative, correspondence, and subject files of the Medical Facilities Planning Division, Texas Department of Health, dating 1947-1979. Also present are construction plans, drawings and specifications for health facilities in Texas; and the biennial State Health Plans from 1952 to 1967. Correspondence is with other state agencies, the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, and others concerning health planning and the construction of health facilities under the Hill-Burton Hospital Construction Program.

Meeting files, Board of Health, 1947-1975,
1.5 cubic ft.
Records consist of meeting files of the Texas Board of Health prepared and retained by the Medical Facilities Planning Division, dating from 1947 to 1975. Records include minutes of the Board of Health, excerpts from these minutes on the Division's Hill-Burton construction projects, agenda and reports for the meetings prepared by the Division, and post-meeting notes and office memoranda from the Division. Also, filed separately, there is outgoing correspondence from the Division with Board of Health members, scheduling Board meetings and arranging the agenda.
These records document the Board of Health's supervision of the Medical Facilities Planning Division's management of the federal Hill-Burton Hospital Construction Program. The Board relied on the Medical Facilities Planning Division to gather data, correspond with the applicants, and prepare reports and agendas for each Board meeting on Hill-Burton projects. The Board then determined at their meetings which hospitals and health facilities had priority in receiving the matching federal construction funds under the Hill-Burton program.
The minutes in this subseries are limited in scope and content. For most years, only excerpts of minutes directly related to the Hill-Burton projects are present. Indeed, most of the records in this series are the agenda, reports, correspondence, and memoranda prepared by the Division for the Board meetings. These report on the status of the Hill-Burton projects and the Board's allocation of funds, and list applicants for future projects.
Arrangement
Records are arranged chronologically, with the correspondence being filed separately from the minutes, agendas and reports.
