CTVSH was established in October 1995 by Drs. Stephanie Beardsley, Stephen Kerpsack and Sharon Theisen. The three doctors completed their specialty residencies at the Ohio State University and returned home to Texas. The hospital was originally located in a 3000sq ft building in south Austin. At the start of the practice, there were more doctors than support staff. Everyone shared in the duties of answering the phones, caring for the patients and maintaining the hospital. As the practice grew, so did the support staff and the hospital.
