Cuero Regional Hospital - Serving You.
Making the difference in the lives of community members is an integral part of Cuero Regional Hospital and has been for over four decades. Providing quality care close to home is the realization of a dream by civic leaders and physicians who led the effort to consolidate the Cuero Hospital Foundation and Burns Hospital, culminating the opening of a new facility, Cuero Community Hospital, in September 1970. With a continued emphasis on progressive health care, the hospital expanded over the years to accommodate the changing needs of patients and the rapid advancement of medical technology. In February of 2017, Cuero Community Hospital became Cuero Regional Hospital as part of the Cuero Health System that now encompasses, Cuero Regional Hospital, Cuero Medical Clinic (including Bohman), Parkside Family Clinic, Goliad Family Practice, Kenedy Family Practice, Yorktown Medical Clinic, Cuero Home Health and Bfit Wellness Center.
