For more than 30 years the University Health System Foundation has served as a critical conduit to the health and well-being of patients, families, employees and the community.
What empowers this support are our partnerships with diverse stakeholders, including individual donors, corporations, and community organizations. Every donation impacts lives, which means every donor becomes a lifeline to compassionate care, extraordinary medicine, continuing education and life-changing innovation for San Antonio and South Texas.
