St. David’s HealthCare
With more than 110 sites across Central Texas, St. David’s HealthCare includes seven of the area’s leading hospitals and is one of the largest health systems in Texas. The organization was recognized with a Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award — the nation’s highest presidential honor for performance excellence — in 2014. St. David’s HealthCare is the third-largest private employer in the Austin area, with more than 8,700 employees.
