San Antonio hospital named among top 5 in Texas in new report
One San Antonio hospital recently ranked among the top five best hospitals in Texas and in the top 250 hospitals in the U.S. Methodist Hospital in San Antonio earned the highest ranking for Coronary Intervention, beating Houston and Austin hospitals to land the No. 1 spot in that category in Texas.
