University Health System is a nationally recognized teaching hospital and network of outpatient healthcare centers, owned by the people of Bexar County. In partnership with UT Medicine San Antonio, the practice plan of The University of Texas Health Science Center, it is consistently recognized as a leader in advanced treatment options, new technologies and clinical research.

For the past six years, University Hospital has been ranked the best in the San Antonio region by U.S. News & World Report, sixth best in Texas, and among the top 50 in the nation for the care of patients with kidney disease and gynecology.

University Health System is Bexar County and South Texas’ first and only health system to earn Magnet status. Only about 6 percent of U.S. hospitals have earned this prestigious designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center — the gold standard in nursing care in the United States.

University Hospital is also the premier trauma center for a vast, 22-county region of South Texas and home to the highest designated pediatric trauma center in the region, and the only center in South Texas able to care for children with serious burns. University Health System provides healthcare for families close to home at our many clinic locations, including the historic Robert B. Green Campus, Texas Diabetes Institute, 13 neighborhood clinics across the community, five ExpressMed urgent-care clinics and four outpatient renal dialysis centers.

The Harlandale ISD School-based Health Center and Southwest ISD School-based Health Center, a collaboration with the Harlandale and Southwest independent school districts, helps keep district students healthy and in the classroom. All of these health centers and clinics are staffed by outstanding physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants of University Medicine Associates, University Health System’s nonprofit provider practice.

University Health System is also proud to partner with San Antonio AirLIFE, which provides emergency air medical transport services aboard its fleet of state-of-the-art Bell 430 helicopters.
