Proud to be an HCA Hospital

Valley Regional Medical Center is an HCA Hospital and we benefit from HCA expertise and resources as well as the experience that comes from being one of the nation’s first hospital companies. HCA invests about $1.5 billion in its hospitals every year keeping facilities up to date and brining in the latest technologies. HCA Gulf Coast provides seamless transfers between its hospitals, including access to ground and air transportation within 150 mile radius.

Our affiliation with HCA allows us to bring world-class medical care and health services into the neighborhoods of Rio Grand Valley, including Brownsville, Harlingen, San Benito and Port Isabel communities.
