Our Children’s House
Specialized inpatient care designed to return each child to their optimum level of health.
Founded in 1993, Our Children’s House provides transitional pediatric care between acute-care hospitalization and home. As a 39-bed inpatient hospital, we provide care to more than 400 patients each year, offering coordinated, comprehensive services for children from infancy through age 18. We treat children with developmental or birth disorders, traumatic injury and severe illness.
No one likes to be sick, especially children. And for those who have spent weeks or months in a hospital, fighting an illness or recovering from an injury, only one place is truly comforting — home. We create a treatment plan that fits your child’s specific health needs. Inpatient or outpatient, we’re by your side.

An Established Legacy of Care
The moment the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word arrived in San Antonio in 1869, health care for children was transformed. Brought here to pursue a ministry of health care by Claude Marie Dubuis, a Frenchman who was the Bishop of all Texas, three Sisters arrived in San Antonio to find a town plagued by a cholera epidemic and the remnants of the Civil War. By 1891, the Sisters congregation had grown to nearly 200 and had established the Santa Rosa Infirmary.
The Sisters continued to care for the children of San Antonio throughout the 20th century, building the first and only hospital for children, Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital, in 1959. The hospital became part of the CHRISTUS family in 1999.
The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio will be the culmination of the vision of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word and the CHRISTUS Health System leadership.
