Our mission at San Marcos Hays County EMS is to keep communities healthy and strong. By leveraging partnerships with local and regional government agencies, area hospitals and local healthcare providers, we are able to provide excellent patient care at a top dollar value to local taxpayers.
San Marcos Hays County EMS Inc. was formed in 1983 when the Hays Memorial Hospital stopped providing ambulance service in Hays County. The City of San Marcos and Hays County appointed a blue ribbon committee to study ways to provide EMS and non-emergency ambulance transportation. The consensus was to form a tax-exempt nonprofit corporation, with the governing bodies appointing representatives to a Board of Directors to oversee operations. Since, the service has expanded to include the City of Kyle and Hays County Emergency Services District #1. As a non-profit public charity, SMHC EMS has no stockholders or owners to answer to, thereby allowing us to reinvest in our medicine, personnel, and patient care. Using a patient centered approach, detailed financial accounting, and analytical decision-making, we bring a level of care to our patients’ well above the State of Texas Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) standards.
We currently provide MICU level services to the following areas: unincorporated areas with in Hays County with the exception of the areas served by Wimberley (ESD #7) and Buda (ESD #2), Cities of Kyle, Mountain City, Uhland, Niederwald, and San Marcos. We also provide services in Guadalupe County, to the City of Staples, communities of Redwood and Zorn, along with unincorporated portions of the county around these areas. This service is provided through a subcontract with the City of Schertz.
