University Health initiates construction of a new clinic on the East Side

A Tribute to Phillis Wheatley: University Health’s New Clinic Promotes Access to Care and Community Health on San Antonio’s East Side

University Health is expanding its presence in San Antonio with the groundbreaking of the Wheatley clinic. This three-story, 60,000-square-foot medical complex is named after African American poet Phillis Wheatley and will be located near the Wheatley Sports Complex on the East Side. The clinic is set to open in early 2026 and will offer primary care, urgent care, and pharmacy services, along with serving as a secondary location for the University Hospital’s Institute for Public Health.

The construction of the Wheatley clinic received support from Bexar County Commissioners Court. $40 million from the American Recovery Act Plan was allocated to support this expansion. The project was commended by Precinct 4 County Commissioner Tommy Calvert for its dedication to promoting a healthy East Side community. He thanked the Eastern Triangle for advocating for healthcare improvements and recognized University Health and the Commissioners Court for responding to the community’s needs.

University Health’s President and CEO, George B. Hernández Jr., expressed his vision for the new clinic as an opportunity to improve access to care and bring the latest technologies, specialists, and health education resources closer to home for thousands of families in San Antonio. This expansion is part of University Health’s ongoing efforts to provide quality healthcare services to residents in San Antonio.
