University Health is Bexar County and South Texas’ first health system to earn Magnet status. Only about 6 percent of U.S. hospitals have earned this prestigious designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center — the gold standard in nursing care in the United States. Magnet hospitals and health systems offer patients reassurance they are being cared for by a team with a proven track record for providing excellent care and positive outcomes for their patients.
Owned by the people of Bexar County, University Health System is a nationally recognized academic health care system with roots in the community going back nearly a century. It operates the lead Level 1 trauma center and the only verified pediatric trauma and burn center in South Texas.
As an academic and research institution, University Health System is dedicated to developing and offering innovative new treatments, and training the next generation of health care professionals. It is the first and only health system in the region to be awarded Magnet status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
