Christus Health is an international Catholic, faith-based, not-for-profit health system comprising almost 350 services and facilities, including more than 60 hospitals and long-term care facilities, 175 clinics and outpatient centers and dozens of other health ministries and ventures.
The moment the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word arrived in San Antonio in 1869, health care for children was transformed. Brought here to pursue a ministry of health care by Claude Marie Dubuis, a Frenchman who was the Bishop of all Texas, three Sisters arrived in San Antonio to find a town plagued by a cholera epidemic and the remnants of the Civil War. By 1891, the Sisters congregation had grown to nearly 200 and had established the Santa Rosa Infirmary.
The Sisters continued to care for the children of San Antonio throughout the 20th century, building the first and only hospital for children, Santa Rosa Children's Hospital, in 1959. The hospital became part of the CHRISTUS family in 1999.
The Children's Hospital of San Antonio will be the culmination of the vision of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word and the CHRISTUS Health System leadership.
