University Health System is a nationally recognized teaching hospital and network of outpatient healthcare centers, covering Bexar County and South Texas. We are ranked by U.S. News & World Report as best hospital in San Antonio, and sixth best in Texas.
University Health System is affiliated with UT Health San Antonio, serving as the primary training location for the UT Health healthcare education programs. Through this, and other partnerships across the community, the Health System employs innovative strategies to improve access to preventive health and primary care services, to engage patients in taking charge of their health and to reduce the burden of chronic illness among individuals, families and the community. University Health System is continually advancing the practice of medicine by discovering new and better ways to prevent and treat illness and injury.
At University Health System, we have an advance care planning program for our patients as well as our employees. Advance care planning is a way to help you think about and share your wishes for your future health care. These wishes can be placed in writing and can provide your loved ones and health care providers with instructions on how you want to be cared for if you are not able to tell them yourself.
