For Physicians

The Seguin medical community is unique in many ways. GRMC (www.grmedcenter.com) 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 five years ago, making this facility one of the most spacious and elegant in the San Antonio region. As per Healthgrades ratings, GRMC has consistently ranked as one of the highest in the nation for quality orthopedic care 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 60 active medical staff members at GRMC who live and practice locally. The community has traditionally been served by private practice physicians, though the nationwide trend for employment and shared overhead practices has begun to evolve in Seguin as well. 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.”

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.
