Improve the quality of your life
From the bays on the coastal plain to the lakes in the forested hills, recreational opportunities abound. Growth along the coast puts just about every cultural, educational and shopping experience just minutes away.
Best of all, Texas’ affordable cost of housing and living help you get much more for your money to enjoy life.
From gently swaying palms to towering pine forests, there’s something everyone can enjoy all year long in our part of the state.
With headquarters in historic Galveston, Texas, just 50 miles south of Houston, many of the positions HCSS staffs for UTMB are on the island itself or in nearby coastal communities. Ocean breezes with moderate temperature extremes, making life on the coast cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It’s a relaxing year-round destination for people from all over the country, and the world.
A small city known for big fun
The full-time population of less than 50,000 makes Galveston small enough to really get to know people, and its relaxed atmosphere makes those people welcoming to all cultures and creeds. Shaded Victorian neighborhoods provide a glimpse of the historic past. A restored business district features a stunning Opera House, period hotels and great culinary experiences. The port that was once second only to New York has grown to become the #4 cruise ship port in the country, but the jewel in its crown is 32 miles of sandy beaches.
