Serving as a focal point for pediatric services throughout the community and south Texas, The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, part of the CHRISTUS Health System, is a world-class children’s hospital – both inside and out. In February 2013, The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio finalized an agreement with Baylor College of Medicine, ranked as the #7 (tied) medical school for pediatrics by U.S. News & World Report in 2021-22. Baylor College of Medicine employs and oversees physicians for the children’s hospital. In total, Children’s Hospital of San Antonio employs more than 1,000 staff members, including a 400-nurse team who earned Magnet designation in 2018.


As the nation’s seventh-largest city and Texas’ second largest city, San Antonio has a rapidly growing pediatric population that has expanded more than 18 percent since 2000. That population is expected to grow an additional 30 percent over the next 20 years. Residents are drawn to San Antonio by its housing prices, which are comparatively lower than other large U.S. cities, along with the area’s sunny weather and mild winters, rich diversity, excellent public and private schools, abundance of green space, professional sports, top-notch restaurants, two major amusement parks, shopping, nightlife and entertainment, and a strong regional economy, plus easy access to a major airport. Stroll or take a river barge along The River Walk, the city’s 5-mile urban waterway. On the weekends, hop in the car and explore Austin (less than 90 minutes), Houston (less than three hours), Dallas (about four hours) or the beaches of Galveston (less than four hours). And, as a resident of Texas, you’ll pay no state income tax.
