Welcome  

We are UTMB Health

COVID recovery and research banner


UTMB Health has always done our part to keep the region, state, nation and world safe—it's in our DNA.
Especially at a time like this, we, more than most, know how to overcome life's gravest challenges.

We have withstood plagues, fires, hurricanes, and floods throughout our 130-year history—
and we have proven that we will "stop for no storm." Even if that storm is a pandemic crisis caused by COVID-19.

We are UTMB Health—and we are here for you. Please lend your support today!

If you would like to leave an encouraging message for UTMB Health employees, who are caring for patients at our hospitals and clinics,
or working on COVID-19 discoveries in our research labs, please click here and we will share your message with them!
