Southside San Antonio’s healthcare transformation begins.
The groundbreaking ceremony for University Health Vida, a 60,000-square-foot health hub on the Southside of San Antonio, signals the start of a transformative project that will redefine healthcare in the community.
A Glimpse of the Future
Attendees gathered to witness the symbolic groundbreaking, signaling the start of construction for the three-story modern facility that will soon become the University Health Vida center. The groundbreaking laid the foundation for a new era of comprehensive healthcare services that will be readily available to the Southside residents. The facility will house a range of services, including primary care, specialty services, and mental health support, ensuring that Southside residents have access to the care they need close to home.
“When I assumed office in Precinct 1, my top priority was to advocate for healthcare resources in South San Antonio. Today marks a significant milestone with the inauguration of the University Health Vida facility—a unique center poised to catalyze improved health, spur economic development, and foster a resilient community.” -Bexar County Commissioner Rebeca Clay-Flores.
Additionally, University Health Vida will offer hands-on cooking classes and personalized nutrition counseling. The facility will also focus on preventive health by providing resources and information to empower the community with tools for proactive health management.
