When you support Peterson Health Foundation, you ensure that our mission is carried out in the following key areas:
OUR PATIENTS RECEIVE QUALITY CARE EVERY DAY
After consistently winning a Top 100 Rural Community Hospital, in 2017 the National Rural Health Association awarded Peterson Health the highest distinction as a Top 20 Rural Community Hospital – the ONLY one in Texas. What sets us apart? At Peterson Health, we are more than a medical center. We provide our patients around the clock care that is compassionate and patient-centered:
“The Surgical Services team provided exceptional care and empathy during my hip replacement procedure. From the beginning, everything was professional and reassuring. The nurse coordinator was welcoming and started the surgical process with a smile.” – Robert
“My wife and I were impressed each time with the level of skill and compassion. I cannot recommend Peterson Health enough, and as a businessman, I appreciate the value of the entire nursing staff that continually made us feel like we were priority #1.” – Mark J. and Family
QUALITY CARE LEADS TO BETTER HEALTH OUTCOMES
We continually elevate our efforts in all that we do to make health care better for the people all around us. This not only leads to a better patient experience, it also means our patients have better health outcomes:
“Without exception, the people are professional, competent and skilled in their approach to treatment rendered. My husband and I are very appreciative of the results achieved and improving my quality of life. Thank you so much and may God bless you.” – Peterson Health Patient
“Thank you Dr. Ryan Veurink for your skills, thoroughness and care in making my right hip replacement surgery an overwhelming success.” – Robert
Vital Community Programs
NEWS, INFORMATION AND SUPPORT FOR OUR COMMUNITY
In addition to providing ongoing news and information that impact the health and wellbeing of the Texas Hill Country residents, Peterson Health offers education and support groups that are essential for improving lives in our community.
These important offerings include our Parkinson’s Support Group, Stroke Support Group, Joint Replacement Classes, and Life Support Classes.
Expanding Access for All
GROWING TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR COMMUNITY
Peterson Health has grown to be so much more than a hospital. What started as a single facility in 1949 has quickly expanded to over a dozen rooftops spanning nine counties, each united with a singular purpose to elevate the health of our community.
Our commitment to expanding access to quality health care is what drives our strategic growth today. Our main campus in Kerrville offers 25 key service lines and departments, while our neighboring Ambulatory Care Center offers outpatient surgeries, radiology, and other critical services.
Proudly, Peterson has expanded its footprint in neighboring counties to include a family practice clinic in Bandera and a physical therapy rehabilitation clinic in Comfort. Plans are also underway to open a new medical facility in Kerrville at 130 W. Main. Peterson Health has no intention of stopping there, as we will continue to discover new opportunities to expand into the regions that need quality health care.
“Without exception, the people are professional, competent and skilled in their approach to treatment rendered. My husband and I are very appreciative of the results achieved and improving my quality of life.”
