Health Care

Health Services

The Rockport-Fulton area prides itself on maintaining a healthy lifestyle that embraces the natural beauty of our coastal area. Residents and visitors alike will find quality healthcare providers for medical and dental needs.

Our local healthcare community currently includes facilities focusing on physical therapy, eye care, home health, hospice, dialysis, chiropractic, and counseling. Although many young families live in our area, there has been a steady growth in our 50+ year-old population. Winter Texans as well as corporate and military retired residents have increased the demand for medical professionals who specialize in this age group. With an urgent care center open seven days a week with advanced technology including full X-ray, CT scan, ultrasound, an on-site reference laboratory, and staffed with experienced physicians, nurses and technologists. Rockport-Fulton has a state-of-the-art EMS Mobile Intensive Care Unit Program that features excellent transport services to more than ten major medical facilities within 15 to 30 minutes of our area. With specialties ranging from pediatrics, cardiology, orthopedics, and oncology to obstetrics, in- or out-patient surgery, and a Level II trauma center; our community is well served.

We are also a hub center for the initial training and continuous education required for EMS personnel in the region. Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi, Driscoll Children’s Hospital, and Christus-Spohn Memorial Hospital jointly provide for the training and certification of nurse practitioners, medical residents, nurses, and therapists; many of whom choose to remain in the area to establish their practice.
