This collaboration is first and foremost about keeping children well by providing great preventive care close to home. Unfortunately, serious illness and injury strikes children across South Texas every day. So our second most important mission is to be here for them with the right level of care, in the right location, when they need us most. University Health System Children’s Health includes a permanent home for UT Health San Antonio pediatric specialties at our beautiful new Robert B. Green Campus downtown, as well as a transition plan to offer inpatient pediatrics at University Hospital.

University Health System is extremely proud to be South Texas’ first Magnet designated healthcare organization. This recognition, by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, is the “gold standard” in measuring the quality of care that patients can expect to receive.

The UT Health Science Center Department of Pediatrics is proud of its role as educators of both the current and next generation of healthcare providers, as providers of cutting-edge clinical care, as researchers unlocking the doors to new knowledge, and as advocates for our society’s most precious asset — our children.
