Healthcare

In a 1969 edition of a Wimberley Chamber of Commerce monthly newspaper, there was a classified advertisement inviting a doctor, any doctor, to come to Wimberley and set up practice. The ad even offered office, laboratory and pharmacy space. Today there are more than 13 physicians in 10 private practices in Wimberley. Specialties range from pediatrics and ophthalmology to internal and family medicine. Several dentists offer excellent dental care and Wimberley boasts acupuncture services, as well as several chiropractors, providing non-surgical treatment and rehabilitation for chronic and acute pain.

Registered pharmacists take care of prescription needs at Brookshire Brothers supermarket and the Wimberley Pharmacy.

The Crescent View Medical Clinic provides medical care and minor emergency care to the community.

Central Texas Medical Center

Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) in San Marcos which originated in 1923 as Hays County Soldiers, Sailors and Marines Memorial Hospital, was restructured in 1960. The present facility was opened at its current Wonder World Drive location in 1983. The CTMC staff of more than 700 employees works with more than 220 active and consulting physicians to provide quality services to patients and their families. In addition, over 200 community members and interns from area educational institutions volunteer their services to the hospital. In 2010 and again in 2011, CTMC was named The Best Hospital in Hays County. In addition, CTMC added a certified Chest Pain Center to its ER capabilities in 2011. In 2012, CTMC became the first operating room along the IH-35 corridor between Austin and San Antonio to be equipped with a da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery suite.

CTMC is a member of the Adventist Health System (AHS), a not-for-profit healthcare organization that emphasizes Christ at the center of care. Founded in 1973, AHS has quickly grown to become the largest not-for-profit Protestant healthcare provider in the nation. Today, AHS supports 44 hospitals and employs 77,000 individuals. AHS hospitals are comprised of 7,700 licensed beds, providing care for 4 million patients each year in inpatient, outpatient and emergency room visits.
