the well-being of our patients, our people, and our community is our top priority.

Our hospital cafeteria provides great dining options

When you need a bite to eat, stop by the Frio Regional Hospital Café, located in the southeast corner of the hospital. We have both indoor and outdoor seating options, and we're always open to the public.

Dining hours are:

  • Breakfast: 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

We appreciate your help in keeping our patients safe

Here are some things to keep in mind about our infection control policy, which helps ensure the health and safety of our patients and visiting guests:

  • Please do not visit the hospital if you're sick. Your loved one may appreciate a phone call instead!
  • Please remember to wash your hands before and after your visit. This simple yet effective step is the single best way to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
