With one of only 15 Level 1 trauma facilities in Texas, University Health System has a big job to do serving South Texas. Partnering with the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio to provide exemplary care, president and CEO George Hernández knows that top-notch physicians need complementary facilities, which is why University Health System is investing in three key construction projects: a Tier 3 data center, a one-million-square-foot trauma tower, and a six-story clinical building on its historic downtown campus.
