The Children's Hospital of San Antonio - Evan Hajda

On April 20, 2012, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System announced its intention to transform the downtown campus into the Children's Hospital of San Antonio, the city's first world-class, freestanding, not-for-profit children's hospital. As our transformation evolves, we are continuing our pediatric care. Here are a few of our patient stories, which highlight the greater level of care and caring provided by the Children's Hospital of San Antonio. Evan entered the world with a bad heart. We performed the city's first pediatric heart surgery, so kids like Evan could change their story. We also performed Evan's surgery when he was 3 days old. Evan is now 3 years old. And counting.
