Public Health and Wellness

The University Health System expansion is one of the most exciting projects in Bexar County. With nearly 25 clinics and campuses, UHS is the third largest public health system in Texas. It is San Antonio’s only health system recognized by U.S. News & World Report regarded as one of America’s Best Hospitals.

University Health System

University Health System, proudly owned by the people of Bexar County, is growing to meet the needs of our community and trauma region. Named BEST in San Antonio by U.S. News & World Report, University Hospital and the health system’s network of outpatient health centers, offer expert care, delivered by people who care.

The $899.4 million capital improvement program includes a new 10-story tower at University Hospital and a six-story advanced outpatient Clinical Pavilion on the historic Robert B. Green Campus downtown. In every way, these facilities, combined with experienced physicians, nurses and staff, utilizing the very latest technology, will redefine excellence in healthcare for decades to come.

The downtown pavilion opened on schedule in January 2013, as well as the new hospital tower, which became available to the public in early 2014. The health system aims to have these two buildings be San Antonio’s first healthcare facilities to earn a Gold rating for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
