Multispecialty and Research Hospital

UT Health San Antonio


UT Health San Antonio Multispecialty and Research Hospital is a 144-bed acute care hospital with a dedicated bone marrow transplant wing located on the UT Health San Antonio Greehey Campus. The building has a two-story pedestal for support services (food service, central sterile, laboratories, emergency department) and a nine-story bed tower which includes private patient rooms and a bone marrow transplant unit with isolation rooms.

The building features manifolded air units for reliability and energy savings, as well as cross connects between critical systems and non-critical systems to provide even more redundancy. Heating is provided by natural boilers, cooling from a connection to a future chilled water plant constructed on the campus.

The bone marrow wing includes 100% redundancy on the air units as well as heating, cooling and exhaust. Outside air and relief air paths were oversized to allow future conversion to once through air.

The building features a dual electrical feed as well as 100% generator back up with N+1 redundancy. Harmonic filters were installed to provide clean power needed to robotics and imaging systems.

Plumbing systems were designed for N+1 redundancy, as well as on site and temporary connections for water storage.

The plant control system is designed for automatic operation with remote monitoring and utilizes redundant mirrored servers for dependable performance.
