About Hillside Medical Lodge

Hillside Medical Lodge offers short-term recovery and traditional long-term care services serving Gatesville, Coryell County and the surrounding Central Texas area. Building on a tradition of excellence established in 1975, we provide guests with 24-hour skilled nursing care, in accordance to a personalized treatment plan developed and overseen by our experienced medical team. The community is comfortable and well appointed with hotel-like amenities. As part of Foursquare Healthcare, a privately owned Texas-based company, we are committed to enriching the lives of our guests and their families, as well as our employees, through astute leadership, stable financial resources, exceptional staffing, and continually evolving programs. And, while our commitment to best practices in the healthcare business is serious, we blend that seriousness with a warmhearted spirit that reflects the community we serve.

The Ultimate Goal

Our focus is on your recovery to get you to your ultimate goal – home. We base this goal our company’s four tenets of care. These four tenets are found in the Foursquare Healthcare logo and the company name (Foursquare). The tulip is the traditional “get-well” flower and the “four squares” represent our foundational services – nursing, therapy, pharmacare and hospitality. To achieve the level of care and recovery you expect and we strive for, our facility provides the highest level of satisfaction, safety and health for guests, residents and their families. To further this goal, we’ve adopted nine tenets as the foundation of our “Code of Customer Service.”  These guidelines are proudly displayed at the Hillside Medical Lodge.

What is Texas hospitality?

It might not be a “howdy,” yet when you enter our doors, our people greet you with a welcoming smile and a warm hello. We want your stay in our short-term rehabilitation and long-term care center to be a home away from home so that it’s familiar and comforting. You’ll find touches of Texas throughout in the artwork, colors and room décor. We even invite your pets to visit along with your family! It’s just one more way to show we care about your emotional well being, as well as, your physical road to recovery.

The Welcoming Cowgirl

Maybe it was the cowgirl's confidence or that warm, open Texas smile, either way, the cowgirl art you see on our walls is part of the welcome we want each guest to feel when they walked into our lobby. The artist, Donna Howell-Sickles, was born in Gainesville, Texas and grew up on a 900-acre farm. It was while attending Texas Tech that she acquired an old 1935 post card depicting a cowgirl seated on a horse that read, "Greetings from a Real Cowgirl from the Ole Southwest;" from there a muse was found. Our cowgirl art is from Donna's "Welcome Home" series. With that same wholehearted exuberance expressed in those paintings, we welcome you to your home away from home.
