Learn about Seguin

Why is this Texas town – just East of San Antonio and South of Austin – right for you?

We’re glad you asked. While you already know about GRMC and our reputation as being one of the best places to work and one of the safest hospitals in the United States – you probably don’t know much about Seguin. This beautiful Texas town is filled with rich history and is making some history all on its own with Guadalupe Regional Medical Center. With plenty of natural beauty, like tree-lined neighborhoods, our sparkling Lake McQueeney and the Guadalupe River winding through town, Seguin is a water-lovers’ delight. Residents who are into watersports like waterskiing, wakeboarding, stand-up boarding and river tubing, find Seguin to be the perfect location to enjoy their hobbies while still leading robust professional lives.

Home to Texas Lutheran University, with Texas State University less than 15 minutes away, Seguin is an ideal location for the education-focused. Those who crave family-centered living will easily find it here with Seguin’s top-rated, growing school districts, including a new high school scheduled for completion in 2017.

Our downtown is made up of revitalized buildings – with some that date back to 1900 – complete with shops, restaurants and even Texas’ oldest licensed bar, making it a charming and desirable destination. While Seguin is smaller than its big city counterparts, San Antonio and Austin, it’s a vibrant, active community that allows residents to experience the best of both worlds – a small town feel with big city amenities and even bigger city access. While our population is 30,000 people strong, we’d love to add to it by having you in our community.
