The Lone Star State
Abilene is the commercial, retail, medical and transportation hub of a 19-county area known as “The Big Country”. It lies on low, rolling plains 153 miles (246 km) west of Fort Worth. This west Texas city is not a big metropolitan area, but as they say “we’re big on what matters – history, spirit, culture, innovation, and adventure.” Abilene is a city with a friendly small-town feel, a great cost of living, minimal traffic, a four-season climate, and some of the prettiest sunsets you’ve ever seen! We would love for you to come to Abilene and meet the team at Hendrick Health System!
