Cardiac Care

As an Accredited Chest Pain Center and Primary Stroke Center, we have the ability to immediately receive and treat patients suffering from heart attack and stroke symptoms. Life-saving heart procedures take place in our interventional cardiac catheterization lab at any time of the day or night.

Women's Care

With a progressive vision for family bonding, our Childbirth Center focuses on breastfeeding, Materni-Tea time and family-centered birthing. Our Level II NICU meets the needs of babies born prematurely after 32 weeks of gestation.

Surgical Care

We were a pioneer in da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery, and are the only location on the IH-35 corridor between Austin and San Antonio to offer the cutting-edge technology. We also added a spine center to the surgery program in 2017.

ABOUT THE AREA

Our area is home to seven diverse communities, where there is something for everyone. You can choose to live in an urban environment, the peaceful Hill Country or a barbecue mecca. In addition to providing a host of family-friendly events, our area is known as one of the "best places to retire" (Forbes) and one of the "best cities for singles" (Livability.com). San Marcos in particular offers fun things to do for all ages, including world-class shopping at the largest outlet malls in the U.S., live music and cultural arts, and outdoor activities like tubing our spring-fed rivers. Living in this region offers the cachet of Austin without the cost. In fact, San Marcos is the third most affordable city in Texas, with housing costs 38 percent lower than in Austin. As an added benefit, our K-12 schools are top-notch, with STEM-focused options and competitive graduation scores.
