For Physicians

The Seguin medical community is unique in many ways. GRMC ( is the only city-county hospital in Texas. It is a not-for-profit, non-corporate, community hospital licensed for 125 beds. A $100 million expansion project was completed in 2010, providing a modern, spacious and elegant practice setting . As per Healthgrades ratings, GRMC has consistently ranked as one of the highest in the nation for quality orthopedic care, gynecological surgery, and management of respiratory failure based on volume and outcomes. In addition to acute care services, we also have an Inpatient Rehab Unit with special focus for orthopedic and neurological patients.

There are approximately 75 active medical staff members at GRMC who live and practice locally. A hallmark of our medical staff has been and continues to be strong unity and dedication to patient care. To maintain this culture, we are very selective in bringing in only board certified physicians who share our commitment for community, collaboration and high quality patient care… summed up in our position statement of “Advanced Medicine. Personal Touch.”    Several new recruitments over the past year have added to the scope and breadth of our medical community, including endocrinology, palliative care, two neurologists, pain management, OB/GYN, wound care/hyperbarics.

About GRMCLearn More

Guadalupe Regional Medical Center is located in Seguin, a budding Central Texas city with a patient catchment area of over 100,000 to our south and east. Seguin is located off Interstate 10, about 35 minutes away from San Antonio and 45 minutes away from Austin. Two nearby cities, New Braunfels and San Marcos, have been ranked as the #12 and #1 fastest growing cities in the United States. Seguin is the county seat for Guadalupe County, ranked by CNN Money Magazine as number 4 in the nation for “where the jobs are”. Some of the many reasons for this phenomenal growth is the Eagleford Oil Shale to our south, the recently completed State Highway 130 directly connecting Seguin to Austin, several significant industries including Caterpillar engine manufacturing, and many popular recreational and family oriented activities along the Guadalupe, Comal and San Marcos Rivers.

Current practice opportunities through GRMC include:

  • Primary Care – Family Practice or Internal Medicine Learn More

Our current top need is primary care. Seguin has 10 family practitioners and 3 internists, half of whom still admit patients in addition to their clinic, and half of whom are exclusively office based.   All have very full practices and welcome additional practitioners to the area.

Two family practitioners are actively recruiting for partners to their highly successful practices:

Antonio Flores, MD, completed his fellowship in geriatrics at John Peter Smith and focuses his practice on adult and senior medicine.    He currently cares for a busy practice load, those patients he admits to the hospital, and covers nursing home patients.    He employs two extenders, and is looking for a partner who is equally hard working and committed to quality patient care.   Competitive salary, bonus structure and benefits are offered.

David Rider, MD, shares his newly constructed progressive office with two other FPs:  James Rider, DO (his brother), and Arlynn Hartfiel, MD (who intends to retire once a replacement is found to take over his established practice of patients).   Competitive salary, bonus structure and benefits are offered.

For either practice, the opportunity to cover inpatients is available but not required.

An ENT surgeon to join existing and successful private practice of Jennifer Hennessee, MD.

A third urologist is being recruited for the community. Competitive salary, bonus structure and benefits are provided.

A pediatrician or pedi-focused FP is sought to join the private practice of Linda Sullivan, MD.

For more information, please contact Michelle Rumbaut at Please note that only board certified physicians will be considered, and that an ideal candidate has Texas roots or ties and intentions of establishing a long range home in Seguin. A San Antonio-based physician will not meet our needs.
