About the Hospital

Cornerstone Regional

In 1998, a group of physicians who were on a mission to offer their community a high level of healthcare services founded an acute care hospital that emphasized orthopedics and general surgery. That hospital was Cornerstone Regional Hospital.

Since then, Cornerstone Regional Hospital has become more diversified and now offers a comprehensive range of medical services and specialties. The staff at Cornerstone Regional Hospital believes in establishing caring and professional relationships with its patients and their families, and encourages family interaction with physicians and staff in its family-oriented, homelike environment. The hospital has 14 comfortable patient suites, giving the staff the ability to extend highly personalized healthcare to help every patient.

In August 2005, the physician owners of Cornerstone Regional Hospital decided to affiliate with the largest healthcare system in the Rio Grande Valley, South Texas Health System. Cornerstone Regional Hospital is directly or indirectly owned by a partnership that includes physician owners, including certain members of the hospital medical staff.

Through this partnership, Cornerstone Regional Hospital has benefited from a support system that has access to managed care health plans, group purchasing contracts, and the ability to coordinate care for patients requiring services beyond the hospital’s immediate scope of practice.

Cornerstone Regional Hospital is licensed by the state of Texas and accredited by The Joint Commission. The hospital is designed to serve patients with general medical and surgical care. Cornerstone Regional Hospital does not provide services to patients who need obstetrics, telemetry or intensive care.
