CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System (CSRHS) is one of the top healthcare organizations in South Central Texas and has hospitals located on four campuses.

The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio campus is San Antonio’s first freestanding children’s hospital.  The Medical Center campus combines a variety of unique patient care services: acute care, transplant, rehabilitation, and geriatrics.  The facilities offer an extensive medical staff, teaching and non-teaching, several primary care and specialty health clinics, and an array of community outreach services.
CSRHS serves as a major teaching facility for the CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Family Medicine Residency Program.  Furthermore, the Department of Pharmacy has built relationships with University of Texas College of Pharmacy and the University of the Incarnate Word College of Pharmacy which serve to benefit both the regional hospitals and the residents.

The residency program incorporates many aspects of clinical pharmacy practice by offering a broad spectrum of experiences.  Residents have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of services including pharmacokinetics, formulary management, medication safety programs, and continuous quality improvement initiatives.  Some of the required rotations during the residency year include pediatric critical care, pediatric hematology/oncology, neonatology, family medicine, and geriatric medicine.  Our residents are expected to present pharmacy practice research at the national and regional level.

CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System is the only faith-based, not-for-profit health care system in San Antonio.  Our hospitals offer diagnostic and treatment facilities that support good health for the mind, body, and spirit.
