Locally Owned.
Locally Focused.

Our status as the only locally owned health system in San Antonio puts us in a position to be there for our community in ways others cannot. Since our founding, University Health has been relied on to provide high-quality care to patients, regardless of their insurance status. Unlike many public health systems, University Health’s payor mix is diverse, as our strong reputation for quality, advanced care and compassion has made us one of the most preferred health providers in South Texas. Patients looking for the very best rely on our nationally recognized Level I Trauma Center and academic hospital, and our comprehensive network of preventive health, primary care and specialty clinic locations.

University Health also includes University Medicine Associates, one of the community’s largest physician and advanced practice provider groups, and Community First Health Plans, the only locally owned nonprofit health plan in San Antonio.

A History of Healing

The opening of the Robert B. Green Memorial Hospital in 1917 was the first chapter in our story. San Antonio was booming during a time of great change for both our nation and the world. In need of a charity hospital, the city and county each contributed half of the $250,000 needed to build it. Our doors opened just in time to care for victims of the influenza epidemic of 1918. Since then, we have evolved into a comprehensive health system that patients from across San Antonio, Bexar County and South Texas trust with their health and lives.

We show up for
our community

Our commitment to promoting the good health and well-being of our community extends beyond our walls. We understand that caring for the people of San Antonio and Bexar County is about more than treating them when they need us. It’s about doing everything we can to help individuals and families get and stay healthy. As a result, we’ve teamed up with several organizations across the region to educate, raise awareness, provide support and make getting healthy fun.


We host a variety of events designed to educate our staff and community members on a wide range of subjects, from valuable skills to support and more.
