CHRISTUS Health renames children's hospital in San Antonio

June 15, 2023

The Children's Hospital of San Antonio got a new name in April: CHRISTUS Children's.

Design plans show how colorful accents will be added to the newly renamed CHRISTUS Children's hospital in San Antonio. The changes are part of a wider plan to add color and other visual elements to create a sense of cohesion between the hospital and its network of facilities.

The hospital is part of Irving, Texas-based CHRISTUS Health. The health system said the new name reflects the hospital's expansion into a network of freestanding emergency centers, specialty, maternal and pediatric clinics as well as outpatient rehabilitation centers located throughout San Antonio and nearby New Braunfels, Texas.

In a press release about the renaming, CHRISTUS said the change is part of a transformation of the hospital's main campus that will include adding colorful murals and other visual elements to create a sense of cohesion between all of the buildings.

In the fiscal year that began July 1, the CHRISTUS Children's network has tallied 6,000 children and maternal inpatients; just under 5,000 surgeries and 105,000 emergency department visits; and more than 180,000 children and expectant mothers as patients at the network's more than 50 outpatient specialty clinics in 15 locations.

CHRISTUS Health President and Chief Executive Ernie Sadau said: "CHRISTUS Children's has a bright future ahead with plans for growth into new communities, new providers, and new services."
