About Methodist Healthcare System of San Antonio
Methodist Healthcare System - San Antonio is the largest provider of health care in South and Central Texas with 28 facilities including nine acute care hospitals serving over 94,000 inpatients and 500,000 outpatients annually. The System team is comprised of 11,000 employees, making Methodist Healthcare System the second largest private employer in San Antonio. With more than 2,700 credentialed physicians, Methodist Healthcare System provides the largest array of medical services in the region including neurosurgery, cardiovascular services, transplants, oncology and women's services.
San Antonio (Spanish for "Saint Anthony") is the seventh most populous city in the U.S. and the second most populous city in Texas, with a population of 1.3 million. It was the fastest growing of the top 10 largest cities in the United States from 2000-2010. The city is located in the American Southwest, the south–central part of Texas, and the southwestern corner of an urban region known as the Texas Triangle.
Chartered in 1955, Methodist Hospital is the pioneer facility of the new world-renowned South Texas Medical Center. Opened in 1963, Methodist Hospital has grown to be the flagship facility of the Methodist Healthcare System, San Antonio's largest and most preferred health care provider. Methodist Hospital maintains this excellent reputation with a commitment to the hospital's needs by exceeding their expectations. With 672 beds, Methodist Hospital offers a broad range of specialties including cardiology, oncology, emergency medicine, neurosciences, maternity care, gynecology and orthopedics.
Methodist Hospital is San Antonio's largest private hospital, as well as the largest provider of health care to rural communities in South Texas and international patients from Mexico.
In the late 1998, Methodist Hospital opened the Gamma Knife Center, the only one of its kind in San Antonio and South Texas. The Gamma Knife offers new radiosurgical technology designed exclusively for the non-invasive treatments of malignant and benign brain tumors, vascular malformations, and other neurological disorders.
Methodist Hospital offers many advanced imaging technologies that provide clear, detailed x-rays so physicians can diagnose and treat their patients' diseases. These tools include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), 3T magnetic resonance imaging, computerized tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), cerebral angiography and picture arching and communications systems (PACS). PACS captures images through the computer instead of an x-ray film. As a result, physicians with the PACS software installed on their computers can view x-rays in their office, from several locations within the hospital and even from home, providing faster and more convenient access to their patients' x-rays.
Approximately 2,000 physicians representing virtually all medical specialties comprise the Methodist's medical staff. It also maintains one of the highest nurse-to-patient ratios in the Southwest.
