Scott & White's Commitment to You
When Arthur C. Scott, MD, and Raleigh R. White Jr., MD, began their medical practice in Temple, Texas in 1897, they shared one fundamental conviction: medicine must serve the people.
What developed from this vision is a fully integrated, non-profit collaborative health system. This means our 12 hospitals and hospital partners, numerous facilities and more than 60 clinics all work under the trusted name of Scott & White Healthcare.
How does this serve you? We believe our integration enhances seamless collaboration. From your trip to the doctor to your advanced surgery, we are with you every step of the way.
