And through it all, University Health has been constantly changing, growing and discovering new ways to heal the people of San Antonio and South Texas. We exist to improve their health, and to advance the practice of medicine. Today, we're a network of over 25 outpatient locations oering primary and specialty care, and a nationally recognized academic hospital that is one of San Antonio's most preferred. We change lives by improving the health of our community—through compassionate patient care, innovation, education and discovery. At University Health, we believe in the power of change. Because that’s where healthier begins. Learn how we’re helping more people change their health for good at UHChange.com.
