The Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce Healthcare Council convenes, connects, and advances healthcare and its related industries in the region through the effective mobilization of resources to close gaps and ultimately realize better health outcomes for all residents. As a leading employer and a vital economic generator with impact of $44.1 billion, San Antonio’s healthcare industry is one of the region’s leading industries. Every one in six members of the workforce are employed by the healthcare industry.

The Council has several current initiatives designed to help move the community forward:

Education: The Committee partners with several healthcare education foundations to enhance the quality and reach of PreK-12 healthcare education in the region and post-secondary programs locally.

Industry Feedback: The Committee regularly collects and publishes industry feedback on career roles and workforce availability.

Workforce: The Committee continues to define pathways for people and students interested in a healthcare career to include internships, educational programs, retraining, and military transition.
