Magnolia Hospice, a privately owned hospice care company, celebrated its grand opening in San Marcos.

The center offers different kinds of expert hospice care, including in-home care and comprehensive care.

Medical Director James Brown emphasized this was a great opportunity for San Marcos.

"We've got the best nurses and the best supportive staff and the best leadership in Central Texas, and that's why we continue to grow," Brown said.

This is Magnolia Hospice's third location in Texas, and there are plans for expanding into the Dallas and Houston areas.

Scott Burkett, senior vice president of sales and marketing, said they were grateful for everyone who attended their grand opening celebration.

"We're excited to be part of this community," Burkett added.
