Medical Miracles Gala

Event Details

2017 Medical Miracles Gala Honoree

As a trauma surgeon, Dr. Ronald Stewart never expected to be leading a community-wide effort to build a stroke system. But in 2008, that’s exactly what happened as San Antonio was the only major city in Texas without a stroke center. As chair of STRAC, the region’s advisory council on emergency care, he found himself partnered with community advocate Suzanne Hildebrand to make the case - this community deserved best-in-class stroke care. At one point Dr. Stewart told a room full of doctors and hospital leaders:

"You know what? I have atrial fibrillation. I could have a stroke and need you guys someday." In 2011, he did.

Hear the rest of the story and celebrate how a community came together for Dr. Stewart, for all of us.

General Donation

This unrestricted fund enables the Foundation to use your gift to respond to ever-changing community requirements and emergencies, including future needs that often can't be anticipated. These donations allow us the greatest flexibility to meet the most pressing demands of University Health System at any time such as funding our trauma mission, purchasing specialized medical equipment, and providing care during a man-made or natural disaster.

Fund the Mission

A great milestone in the history of University Health System was achieved in March of 2016 - University Hospital was certified as a comprehensive stroke center by The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, becoming one of only three hospitals statewide and about 100 across the country to be so recognized by The Joint Commission.

Be a part of our life-saving mission with a gift to the James Ray Hildebrand Stroke Fund. This new fund was formed in memory of Ray by his wife Suzanne to assist patients and families suffering from the impact of stroke. Donations will support medical and non-medical expenses for families to help minimize financial and emotional burdens, community education and outreach focused on prevention and support.
