Since its launch in 1996 as one of the first freestanding heart hospitals in the United States, South Texas Health System Heart has provided innovative solutions to improve the overall patient experience. But the facility’s dedication to quality, compassionate care goes beyond the cardiovascular.

STHS Heart is equipped with a full-service emergency department and a surgery center where surgeons perform general, cardiovascular and bariatric surgical procedures. In June 2023, the facility expanded those services to include robot-assisted surgery.

Now, just six months after launching its robotics program, STHS Heart is celebrating a special milestone… the completion of its 100th robotic surgery using the da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System in late December 2023.
