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 want to hear back from you. We are on a mission to attain national recognition 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's Fall 2019 Patient Safety Grade? 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 that we are the only Robotic Surgery Center of Excellence in the Rio Grande Valley. Our experienced surgical team supports top-rated surgeons using the latest da Vinci Xi® robotic surgery system. General surgeons and OB/GYN surgeons use the robot to provide minimally invasive surgery and enhance recovery times.

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 for normal deliveries, cesarean sections, gynecological surgical procedures and hysterectomies. 

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 minimalized 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.

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