Who We Are


Cornerstone Healthcare Group, based in Dallas, Texas, was founded in 1990 and operates in three divisions: Long-Term Acute Care Hospitals, Senior Living, and Behavioral Health.


We pride ourselves on our quality of care, responsive service, and commitment to excellence. We treat each patient and resident like we would a member of our own family, and measure our success by the direct impact we have on improving the quality of life for our patients and residents.


Why Work for Us?


Our hospitals offer competitive compensation and benefits, but that is not why our employees come to work for us. As a Cornerstone employee, you are truly a valued contributor to our team. It is no wonder why our employees gave us high scores in both overall satisfaction and employee engagement in our latest Cornerstone Employee Partnership Survey.


Our Core Values are woven into the fabric of our culture and ingrained in our employees and how they perform their jobs every day.
