A Tradition of Excellence
The overwhelming drive to improve and be the best originates from an auspicious heritage.
HCM opened in 1971, and ninety-three percent of Gillespie County households contributed to have it built. The roots of this extraordinary achievement are found in the small, Hill Country town of Fredericksburg in which original settlers were called to give of their time, treasure and talents to serve others. Today, hospital employees, physicians and volunteers reflect diverse backgrounds, but the principal motivation of doing worthwhile work and making a difference is a thriving inheritance. The health care result is an organization which exceeds patient needs and helps fulfill community goals. As Fredericksburg has grown in population and world-wide recognition, the hospital has paralleled the rise by broadening available service lines, improving quality, continuing to recruit great physicians and adapting to health care trends.
