Message From the President

dr hromas

The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, also called UT Health San Antonio, is vital to the health of the community, the nation and the world. With missions of teaching, research, patient care and community engagement, we are laser-focused on our mission: We make lives better.

UT Health Science Center San Antonio has an annual research portfolio of $413 million, making us the largest academic research institution in South Texas. Tireless efforts in our laboratories have translated into some of the world’s most advanced treatments for disease, most notably the Palmaz Stent and the Vertical Expandable Prosthetic Titanium Rib.

Each discovery translates into leading therapies for the 2.8 million patient visits we offer through our comprehensive network of medical, dental and nursing specialists. It is a network that is growing astronomically as we prepare to open the UT Health San Antonio Multispecialty and Research Hospital — a momentous milestone in the history of our university.

Our schools of medicine, nursing, dentistry, health professions, graduate biomedical sciences and public health have graduated more than 43,700 alumni who are leading change, advancing their fields and renewing hope for patients and their families throughout South Texas and the world. In fact, we graduate more doctors, nurses and dentists than any university in Texas.

We hope you’ll learn more about our unique institution as you journey through this site. We also hope that you’ll join us as we embark on the historic growth that will mark our next decade and beyond.

Robert Hromas, MD, FACP
Acting President
