San Antonio is slowly moving toward healthcare innovation and large-scale change. Methodist’s new hospital planned for Westover Hills plus a suite of microhospitals, freestanding ERs, urgent-care centers and a new women’s hospital opening in 2022 help fill care gaps but largely ignore the chronic shortage of providers suffered by San Antonio and Texas as a whole. Keep an eye on Baptist Integrated Physician Partners, Wellvana, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, and Aetna as these organizations look to impact care delivery and clinical protocols through value-based contracts, convenient care access, and increased care coordination in 2020 and beyond.
