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 Health San Antonio, 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. Magnet hospitals and health systems offer patients reassurance they are being cared for by a team with a proven track record for providing excellent care and positive outcomes for their patients.

University Hospital’s Emergency Department is the most experienced in the region, staffed entirely with board-certified emergency medicine physicians. 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.
