About Children's Hospital of San Antonio:
CHRISTUS Santa Rosa has a long history of caring for the children of San Antonio and South Texas. Since the very first days, our mission has been to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.
In 1869, the first hospital in San Antonio was opened by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word – Santa Rosa Infimary. In 1874, the Sisters began to care for children, bringing four orphans into their care. A pediatric unit opened in the late 1800s. In 1930, the infirmary was renamed Santa Rosa Hospital. The Children’s Hospital opened in 1959 as the region’s first hospital solely dedicated to the care of children. On April 20, 2012 CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System announced board approval from CHRISTUS Health to transform its downtown campus to the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, the city’s world-class freestanding children’s hospital.
The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio will be the focal point for a network of pediatric services through the community. There will also be outpatient facilities and clinics throughout the region. Releasing the burden from taxpayers, the not-for-profit system will continue to serve the traditionally low-profit, high touch needs of the pediatric population. For more than 50 years, the Children’s Hospital has developed and grown services that meet specific needs in the community – and will continue to do so well into the future.
