Rooted in Health
- We trace our roots to 1869, when the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word heeded a call from the Catholic bishop of Texas to care for the multitude of sick, infirm, and orphaned in the Texas frontier.
- The sisters arrived in San Antonio (pop. 12,000 ) and built the region’s first public hospital — Santa Rosa Infirmary (now CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital).
- The sisters announced that the hospital would be open to "all persons without distinction of nationality or creed."
- On December 3, 1869 the day of the hospital's opening, the nine-bed hospital admitted eight patients.
- Over time, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word pioneered the idea of a total system of medical care that would offer the latest preventive, diagnostic and treatment facilities to care for the mind, body and spirit of all the inhabitants of San Antonio and South Texas.
