here’s no doubt that Austin is a healthy city. With miles of hiking, biking and running trails, a velodrome
for cycling enthusiasts, and plenty of soccer, volleyball and football fields, Austin is a city that’s
committed to the health of its residents. That commitment includes many excellent healthcare resources
– whether for preventive, emergency, short-term, long-term, or therapeutic care.
There are three major healthcare systems in the Austin/Central Texas area: St. David’s HealthCare,
the Seton Healthcare Family of Hospitals, and Scott & White Healthcare, which has several locations both in
Austin and just north of Austin on I- 35 that primarily serve the Temple area. With these three systems, as well
as many other quality independent providers such as the Austin Diagnostic Clinic and the Austin Regional
Clinic, there are more than 5,000 healthcare facilities in the Greater Austin area.
Healthcare in Austin is top-notch, too. In fact, five area hospitals have been named to a list of the top 100
hospitals in the United States. Scott & White Hospital, St. David’s Medical Center and St. David’s North Austin
Medical Center (both part of the St. David’s HealthCare system), University Medical Center Brackenridge, and
Seton Medical Center Austin (both part of the Seton Family of Hospitals), were chosen from more than 5,000
