Cedar Park Regional Medical Center celebrated its 10-year anniversary at an event Dec. 4, highlighting the number of lives saved and other milestones since its opening in 2007.
“It has been a game changer, not only for Cedar Park but for the region,” Williamson County Precinct 2 Commissioner Cynthia Long said. “It is really exciting to see where Cedar Park Regional Medical Center is today after 10 years.”
Chief Operating Officer Brad Holland said that since the medical center opened, it has:
- saved over 1,000 lives,
- delivered over 6,000 babies,
- treated over 250,000 emergency room visits,
- completed over 40,000 surgeries,
- touched more than 300 patients a day
- and invested over 32 million dollars.
Holland said there are over 800 physicians on staff, and 151 of those doctors have been with Cedar Park Regional Medical Center for 10 years.
Three patients spoke of their experiences at the hospital. Shay Tower delivered the medical center’s first set of twins, Jensen and Ari Tower.
She said that coming into the hospital in labor “was like joining a well-choreographed ballet.”
