Message from Our CEO

TKlawiterimageOn behalf of the staff and physicians, I would like to welcome you to South Texas Spine & Surgical Hospital (STSSH). We realize that surgery can be a uneasy experience for both you and your family. Our goal is to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

South Texas Spine & Surgical Hospital is consistently ranked as one of the top hospitals in the country with regards to patient experience and clinical excellence. Why? One reason is we are owned and operated by physicians. Why does this matter? Physician ownership and management is an innovative approach to healthcare which creates an integrated and holistic path to a successful surgery, pleasant hospital stay and speedy recovery. We are managed locally. Not by a big company based in another state. Most hospitals have a one size fits all philosophy, providing a wide variety of services with the same approach.  At STSSH, we are specialized, spine and orthopedic surgery. Therefore, we are experts in these areas.

We are excited to share with you our first-class service, which includes:
• Private, oversized patient suites which will easily accommodate family and friends.
• A low nurse to patient ratio to provide you with more personal attention.
• Convenient, quiet location with an easily accessed front door and free parking. No downtown, medical center or big hospital hassle.
• All of the creature comforts you deserve; great food, Wi-Fi and flat screen televisions with cable to name a few.

In order to make your stay with us as stress free as possible, you will receive a call from our pre-admission office. This will provide you with important information regarding pre-operative testing, when to arrive and any other actions that must be taken to ensure a stress free day of surgery. You may also receive a call from our business office. Our patient and caring business office staff will help you navigate the complex world of health insurance.

Again, I would like to personally welcome you to an experience that is smaller in size, but bigger in results, a place where you are a person, not a number. I know your experience will be outstanding. If you have any questions or concerns (and compliments!), please call me anytime at 210-507-4090. Thank you for choosing South Texas Spine & Surgical Hospital, we look forward to serving you.
