Welcome from the CEO

Hello and thank you for visiting our website. Here at South Texas Health System Edinburg, we are passionate about serving our community and we want to hear back from you. We are on a mission to become nationally recognized for our clinical outcomes and service. Thanks to our incredible team of care providers, we are already accomplishing much of what we have set out to achieve.

Leapfrog 'A'

Did you know that our hospital was awarded an 'A' from The Leapfrog Group for three straight years? That places us in the top 32 percent of hospitals throughout the nation for safety and quality outcomes!

Robotic Surgery Center of Excellence

Another highlight of South Texas Health System Edinburg is our robust robotic surgery program. Our experienced surgical team supports top-rated surgeons in the Rio Grande Valley using the latest da Vinci Xi® robotic surgery system. We have been designated as a Center of Excellence by the Surgical Review Corporation for Robotic Surgery, Minimally Invasive Surgery, and Robotic Hernia Surgery. We are proud to bring this higher level of care and faster recovery times to our community.*

5-Star Women’s Services

HealthGrades, another national organization, has recognized our hospital with its highest 5-star rating in four key areas of women’s health! This places Edinburg in the top tier of quality and safety outcomes for normal deliveries, cesarean sections, gynecological surgical procedures and hysterectomies. Our experienced team of physicians, nurses, and technicians is ready to welcome you and your loved one with warmth and a truly personalized approach to your care.

Fast Emergency Care

When seconds matter most, our Emergency Department is ready to serve you. Our team has worked tirelessly to make sure wait times are minimized and that communication is clear for all our patients and providers in the community. We are proud to provide services as a Certified Stroke Center and Certified Chest Pain Center for the Rio Grande Valley.

As the Rio Grande Valley continues to grow, South Texas Health System Edinburg is ready to grow along with it. We want the community to know that high quality services are available close to home, and that our team is ready to serve you in a warm, compassionate and uplifting way.

New Patient Tower

Looking toward the front of our hospital, you may have noticed our large construction project that is taking place. We are excited to let the community know that we are investing $105 million to build a new 5-story patient tower to take care of our growing healthcare needs in the Rio Grande Valley. The new patient tower will include an expanded ER, an all-new imaging department, expanded ICU beds, additional medical/surgical/telemetry beds, and an expanded inpatient rehabilitation unit with the latest technology available. Construction will be complete in the summer of 2022.

Thank you for trusting us with your care, and please feel free to reach out to me!
