University Health (UH) is a nationally recognized academic medical center with associated outpatient health care centers across Bexar County. In partnership with UT Medicine San Antonio, UH is consistently recognized as a leader in advanced treatment options, new technologies, and clinical research. UH was the first health system in San Antonio and South Texas to earn Magnet status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Only six percent of the nation’s hospitals have earned this designation, which is widely accepted as the “gold standard” in measuring the quality of care that healthcare consumers can expect to receive.

University Hospital’s Emergency Department is the busiest in the region, with more than 80,000 visits each year. Emergency care includes adult emergency room, designated pediatric emergency room, and premiere trauma care as the only adult and pediatric Level 1 trauma center covering a 22-county region of South Texas.

University Health Women’s & Children’s hospital, opening in August 2023, is the first of its kind in South Texas, housing an advanced Level IV maternity center, Level IV NICU, pediatric emergency department, and Women’s Center for OB/GYN emergencies.

The University Transplant Center is a twice-awarded Medal of Honor recipient from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and received the INTERLINK 2023 Chairman’s Award as the number one liver transplant program in the nation. University Health provides healthcare for families close to home at our clinic locations, including the Robert B. Green Campus, Texas Diabetes Institute, 13 neighborhood clinics across the community, five urgent-care clinics and four outpatient renal dialysis centers. 

In collaboration with the UT College of Pharmacy, the UH Residency provides a challenging, well-rounded training environment, with a wide range of experiences among diverse patient populations in both inpatient and ambulatory care areas in a large academic health system. Longitudinal experiences include academic pharmacotherapy, hospital pharmacy practice, major research project, and professional development. Required rotations include orientation, ambulatory care, critical care, internal medicine, pediatrics, and practice management. A variety of electives are offered including, but not limited to, cardiology, emergency medicine, solid organ transplant, oncology, infectious diseases, and palliative care.
