Event Details

Thursday, May 9, 2019
La Cantera Resort & Spa, San Antonio Grand Ballroom

On Sunday, November 5, 2017, teams from across South Texas came together – bringing their very best – on one of the very worst days for our community. We continue to be amazed by the strength and faith of the Sutherland Springs patients and families we cared for at the Level I trauma center at University Hospital. And, with our partners at Brooke Army Medical Center, we are proud to recognize the heroic efforts of everyone who responded and served with great precision, skill and compassion. Please join us for the 2019 Medical Miracles Gala as we honor two courageous patients, and our community of first responders and trauma professionals.
