LENGTH OF RESIDENCY:
Owned by the people of Bexar County, University Health System is a nationally recognized academic medical center. In partnership with UT Medicine San Antonio, the practice plan of The University of Texas Health Science Center, it is consistently recognized as a leader in advanced treatment options, new technologies and clinical research. Just recently, U.S. News & World Report ranked University Hospital as the Best Metro Hospital and Best for kidney disorders, geriatrics, diabetes/endocrinology, orthopedics and urology. UHS is also the first and only health system in San Antonio and South Texas to earn Magnet status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Only six percent of the nation's hospitals have earned this designation, which is widely accepted as the "gold standard" in measuring the quality of care that healthcare consumers can expect to receive.
University Hospital, currently operating 500 beds, is one of just 15 Level I trauma centers in Texas, and the lead trauma center for all of South Texas. It is the only hospital in San Antonio able to provide expert trauma care for critically injured and burned children. The Emergency Center at University Hospital is the busiest in the region and averages nearly 70,000 visits each year. The University Transplant Center is a 2008 and 2009 Medal of Honor recipient from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and achieves patient outcomes exceeding national averages for kidney, liver and lung transplantation. University Health System provides healthcare for families close to home at our clinic locations, including the Robert B. Green Campus, Texas Diabetes Institute, 13 neighborhood clinics across the community, five urgent-care clinics and four outpatient renal dialysis centers. University Health System is also a joint owner of San Antonio AirLIFE, who provides emergency air medical transport services aboard its fleet of state-of-the-art Bell 430 helicopters.
