Event Details

Building Lifelines. Together.

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. At the 2019 Medical Miracles Gala we honored two courageous patients, and our community of first responders and trauma professionals.

Honorary Committee

Please join us for the 14th annual University Health System Foundation Medical Miracles Gala on May 9, 2019 at La Cantera Resort & Spa. This year we honor two courageous patients from Sutherland Springs and our community of first responders and trauma professionals who served with great precision, skill and compassion. We are also proud to announce the 2019 Medical Miracles Gala Honorary Committee who represent community partners who play a key role in the work we do to serve patients and their families at the Level 1 trauma center at University Hospital. The sponsorship packet is included for your review and we invite you to join us in making more miracles happen by returning the enclosed form with your commitment.
