Some cities are lucky to have one top hospital in their community. Tyler has four.

East Texas Medical Center Tyler

Tracing its origins to 1949, East Texas Medical Center Tyler is a 464-bed hospital that specializes in acute care medicine and has more than 500 physicians on medical staff. ETMC Tyler admits about 20,000 patients annually, and it oversees more than 60,000 ER visits and about 13,500 surgeries. The hospital is a leader in hyperbaric medicine, cancer care, cardiovascular care and women's health, and in September 2015 began offering scoliosis surgery with a new Mazor Robotics Renaissance guidance system. About 7 million Americans develop scoliosis, which is a curvature of the spine, and options include either a brace or surgery to place straightening rods in the back.

Trinity Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler

With Tyler's only neonatal intensive care unit, Trinity Mother Frances Hospital is a 404-bed acute care facility in the heart of Tyler that offers a complete range of services. They include trauma care, neurology and neurosurgery, nephrology, geriatrics, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology. The facility admits about 25,000 patients a year, performs 18,000 surgeries, and treats about 70,000 ER patients. In 2015, Mother Frances Hospital was named one of the “100 Great Community Hospitals in America” by Becker's Hospital Review, which ranks hospitals for their clinical and operational performance and financial stability.

UT Health Northeast at Tyler

With a 109-bed hospital and a 24/7/365 Emergency Care Center, UT Health Northeast at Tyler, also known as the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, treats more than 140,000 outpatients annually and accommodates more than 3,500 inpatient stays. As an academic medical center under the University of Texas system, its mission is three-fold: to care for patients, conduct innovative research, and prepare the next generation of medical professionals. Specialties include oncology, cardiology and urology, and patients from throughout the U.S. come to see the hospital's adult and pediatric lung disease specialists.

Texas Spine & Joint Hospital

A new $27 million Texas Spine & Joint Hospital treats patients from six East Texas counties who suffer from spine, neck and back pain or need urgent care. New operating rooms opened on the campus in 2015, while well-appointed inpatient rooms are designed to accommodate larger groups of family and friends. New state-of-the-art equipment includes the region's first 3T Digital MRI machine that provides pinpoint diagnoses.
