A $1.2 million grant from the San Marcos-based Miriam and Emmett McCoy Foundation will fund Central Texas Medical Center’s acquisition of a second game-changing da Vinci robotic surgical system.

The McCoys’ gift — the largest in the hospital’s history — allows CTMC to expand on a major capital investment that has been used in more than 700 operations since its acquisition in May 2012, exceeding administrators’ expectations many times over.

“The timing of [the gift] is crucial in terms of CTMC’s and San Marcos’ continued health and well-being,” said Clay DeStefano, the hospital’s director of public relations and marketing. “… A thriving hospital is a major economic driver in whichever community it resides. CTMC’s growth and success helps propel San Marcos’ growth and success.”
