Healthcare like no other for more than 100 years

When Arthur C. Scott, MD, and Raleigh R. White, Jr., MD, began their medical practice in Temple, Texas, in 1897, they shared one fundamental conviction: medicine must serve the people.

Today, Scott & White Healthcare is a fully integrated nonprofit collaborative health system with 12 hospitals or hospital partners, two nursing homes/skilled nursing facilities, and more than 60 clinics providing care to residents in a 29,000-square-mile service area across Central Texas. Scott & White is recognized as the largest multispecialty practice in Texas and one of the nation’s largest multispecialty group practice systems.

Scott & White has more than 13,000 employees and employs 900 physicians and scientists, and it is the primary clinical teaching facility for approximately 400 medical residents and fellows in training at the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine.

In addition, the Scott & White Health Plan serves more than 180,000 members and is one of the highest rated plans in the nation, consistently recognized for member satisfaction.

We take this same approach to excellence at the Children’s Hospital at Scott & White, ensuring kids thrive here.
