HSS Growing in San Antonio

The Methodist Healthcare System serves San Antonio and 26 surrounding counties with top quality staff and services in 23 facilities. In March 2010, HSS Healthcare Security became the security services provider for Methodist Hospital, San Antonio’s largest private hospital. Included with Methodist Hospital were the Methodist Children’s Hospital, Methodist Specialty and Transplant Hospital, Methodist Ambulatory Surgery Center, Methodist Boerne Emergency Center, Methodist Ministries, and Methodist Texsan Hospital. Methodist Healthcare has now awarded HSS the security contracts for three more of its hospitals, effective October 2: Methodist Stone Oak Hospital, Metropolitan Methodist Hospital, and Northeast Methodist Hospital. Here’s a little about HSS’s three newest healthcare security customers:

Methodist Stone Oak Hospital, which opened in March 2009, is the first full-service hospital built in South Texas in the 21st century. It offers emergency care, obstetrics, newborn intensive care, cardiology, neurosurgery, general surgery and orthopedics.

Metropolitan Methodist Hospital, a campus of Methodist Hospital, is a 326-bed hospital providing a complete range of healthcare services. In 2005, the hospital opened the Metropolitan Methodist Hospital Women’s Pavilion, the only facility in downtown San Antonio completely dedicated to the health of women and their newborn babies. Metropolitan Methodist Hospital offers cardiac care, general and surgical care, neurosurgery, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, and sleep disorder evaluation. It operates the largest emergency department in downtown San Antonio.

Northeast Methodist Hospital, also a campus of Methodist Hospital, is located in Live Oak, Texas.  It has been significantly renovated to completely upgrade and expand the facility and services to the surrounding communities.

“We are pleased to welcome these three leading hospitals as HSS Healthcare Security customers,” says Alan Butler, HSS Director of Operations & Consulting. “HSS has partnered with Methodist leadership to bring a systemwide approach to all their healthcare security initiatives and we intend to serve these facilities with the same high quality security service we’ve been providing the Methodist Healthcare System for over a year.”
