University Health System Tours

Exceptional care, provided with the latest technology in comforting and welcoming environments, is what patients expect and deserve. And we are taking that expectation to an entirely new level at the Sky Tower at University Hospital in the South Texas Medical Center and the Robert B. Green Campus in downtown San Antonio.

We invite you and members of your school, business or community organization to come tour these beautiful and state-of-the-art facilities and learn more about the difference we are making for the South Texas community when it comes to healthcare.

School/Student Tour

The healthcare industry continues to grow at a rapid pace. With a mission to support and educate future healthcare professionals, we are delighted to offer school and student tours of University Hospital.

Tours should have a minimum of 12 attendees but cannot exceed 24, including one teacher for every 12 students. Our hospital tour lasts about 2-3 hours, and we ask for 2-3 months advanced notice upon request. Please email with questions.

Business or Community Organization Tour

The million-square-foot Sky Tower opened its doors in April 2014, doubling the size of University Hospital and drawing much praise and excitement from the community. From its soaring, art-filled lobby to its tranquil healing gardens, to the advanced technology woven into every aspect of its design, this transformation of Bexar County’s premier teaching hospital and Level I Trauma center has made it one of the most beautiful and advanced in the nation. 

We welcome businesses and community organizations to tour our new facility and learn about the latest technology, research and treatment we’re using to care for our community. Tours are available by appointment.

SaludArte: Healing Arts Program Tour

University Health System’s Salud-Arte: Art of Healing Program was created from the belief that art can inspire healing and hope. As part of the $899 million expansion of University Hospital and the historic Robert B. Green Campus, more than 1,500 original works of art and design enhancements from artists both local and worldwide were acquired over a three-year period. These include Ned Kahn’s “Feather Wall,” the dramatic, fluttering wind veil that covers much of the front of the six-story clinical pavilion at the Robert B. Green, to the soaring “Foxglove” sculpture by Ed Carpenter in the lobby of University Hospital’s Sky Tower, to “You Activate This Space,” the remarkable light-and-sound experience by Ansen Seale that follows employees coming to and from work across the staff bridge to University Hospital. Archivist Allison Hays Lane or a member of the Design Enhancement Public Art team leads tours at either University Hospital or the Robert B. Green Campus by appointment only.
