As with other cities in Texas, one of San Antonio’s primary health obstacles is tackling obesity in adults and children. To that end, San Antonio is home to 2 healthcare systems that rate high-performing in treating heart failure and colon cancer, conditions often associated with obesity and a poor diet:
- Methodist Health System, ranked #1 in San Antonio, has 811 licensed beds and 25 operating suites
- Baptist Health System, ranked #2 in San Antonio, has 6 primary locations and a Leapfrog hospital safety A Grade for all 6 of its hospitals
For children’s healthcare, several options exist. Methodist Children’s Hospital has 202 licensed beds and has received Leapfrog A Grade in 3 consecutive reporting periods. Clarity Child Guidance Center offers behavioral health options to children. And for community hospitals, walk-in clinics, and health ministries, there’s the healthcare system CHRISTUS Health.
