Baptist Emergency Hospital Announces Partnership with Valero Texas Open

With excitement already in the air in San Antonio as Fiesta weekend kicks off, Baptist Emergency Hospital announced today that it will once again become an official sponsor of the Valero Texas Open. The tournament will be held April 18-24 at the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio.

“At Baptist Emergency Hospital, we really are committed to our community,” said Adolfo Carrasco, regional CEO for Baptist Emergency Hospital, “Not only do we have convenient hospital locations throughout the greater San Antonio area, we also take the time to partner with organizations in our area to benefit our city as a whole.”

With World Golf Hall of Fame member Phil Mickelson officially committed to play in the tournament late last week, the event is sure to attract spectators and golf enthusiasts as the top golfers from around the world gather for a week of tournament play.

Attendees are invited to stop by the Baptist Emergency Hospital tent at the Gatorade Fan Fest during the event to register to win a sleeve of Titleist PRO V1X golf balls among other prizes. Pre-registration and more information is available online at

Baptist Emergency Hospitals have convenient locations spread throughout the San Antonio area including Hausman, Overlook, Thousand Oaks, Westover Hills, Schertz and coming soon, Zarzamora.



The Valero Texas Open is the 6th oldest professional tournament in golf world-wide, the 3rd oldest on the PGA TOUR and the longest held in the same city.  In 2012, the tournament celebrated its 90th anniversary. It’s list of champions includes some of the greatest names in golf history: Walter Hagen, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Ben Crenshaw, Hale Irwin, Lee Trevino, Nick Price, Justin Leonard, Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, and 2015 Champion Jimmy Walker, to name a few.

The Valero Texas Open is always driven by its charitable mission – to give back to the community. In the tournament’s previous 93-year history through 2015, over $105 Million had been raised for charity. The 2015 tournament raised $10.4 million for charity, making us proud yet humbled to become only the fourth PGA TOUR event to eclipse the $100 Million milestone in funds raised for charity.
