AUSTIN - Plans are on track for the new state-of-the art children’s hospital and an associated network of clinics that together will change the paradigm of pediatric health care in San Antonio and beyond, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
President William Henrich told the University of Texas System Board of Regents Wednesday, May 8.
The Board of Regents in September authorized UT Health Science Center to join with Vanguard Health Systems
