The TriCounty Medical Society has a rich history of physician pioneers dedicated to the health and welfare of Central Texans.  In 1906, in the 7th or "Austin" District of the Texas Medical Association, there were 10 physician members in Hays County Medical Society and 17 in the Caldwell County Medical Society.  Blanco county was not mentioned in these records.  These Medical Societies were very active and had very prominent physicians as members, including Dr. E. P. Shelton of Dripping Springs, who went on to be president of the Hays-Blanco Medical Society, Dr. F. R. Martin of Kyle, and Dr. T. B. Coopwood of Lockhart. 

Records show that the Hays-Blanco Medical Society was chartered in 1934.  This charter currently hangs in the Central Texas Medical Center.  The Caldwell County Medical Society was officially chartered in 1950 (location of this charter is unknown!)  The Hays-Blanco-Caldwell County Medical Society, which is now known as the TriCounty Medical Society received its formal charter on February 19th, 2010.  Today we are 136 members strong and represent almost 80 percent of the physicians practicing in our area.  We have come a long way since 1906, but one thing has not changed:  we are physicians dedicated to the health and welfare of our patients.

We are always looking for information and history about the medical community in the TriCounty area.  If you have any information you would like to share with us, please contact us at
