Laredo Medical Center

Laredo’s first hospital, Laredo Medical Center (originally Mercy Health Center) has continued to build on an over 120 year tradition of caring for the community. The largest hospital employer in Webb County, it has been part of Community Health Systems since 2003. Laredo Medical Center continues its full Cycle IV Accreditation with PCI from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC) — the only hospital in Laredo with this level of accreditation.
