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 seven years, since it began ranking regional hospitals, U.S. News & World Report has ranked University Hospital as the best in the San Antonio area. University Hospital is ranked among the top 50 in the nation for gynecology. University Health System is Bexar County and South Texas’ first 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.
