University Health System is the public district hospital for the San Antonio, Texas, USA metropolitan area. It is also San Antonio's only health system recognized by U.S. News & World Report, regarded as one of America's Best Hospitals. Owned and operated by Bexar County, it is the third largest public health system in Texas.[1]

As the primary teaching hospital for the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, University Hospital is a regional Level I Trauma Center and a leader in Organ Transplantation.

The facility is located in the South Texas Medical Center.


University Hospital will dramatically increase in size with a $778 million expansion and renovation designed by the Dallas office of Perkins + Will.[2] The expanded hospital will increase the beds from the current 498 to more than 700 and the floor space will nearly double to about 2 million square feet. In addition to adding on a new section, the existing two towers will be renovated and the AirLife helicopter pad will be moved from the south parking garage to the roof of the new, 10-story parking garage currently under construction.[3]
