How a Dynamic Medical Community is Reshaping Central Texas

It’s no accident that Central Texas has emerged as a global leader in technology, innovation, and creativity.

More than twenty years ago, community leaders had the vision to embrace the technology revolution sweeping the nation—and mobilize support to win the national contest for Microelectronic & Computer Technology Corporation (MCC), a watershed event that radically transformed the region’s economy.

Once again, Central Texas is recognizing the opportunity to establish itself as a national innovator. Local leaders in medicine, business and government are working today to build a world-class medical community right here at home. While the region’s current infrastructure of hospitals, clinics, and healthcare providers is already outstanding, the stage is being set for a significant transformation that will benefit every Central Texan.
