About The San Antonio Medical Foundation

The San Antonio Medical Foundation (SAMF), Founders and Directors of the South Texas Medical Center, was formed in 1947 as a 501 (c)(3) Public Charity. The initial goals were to bring a medical school to San Antonio and add hospitals. The Mission of the SAMF is to ‘Provide leadership and active stewardship of our land and other assets to improve health care, advance biomedical science and enhance community well-being’. The SAMF serves as a catalyst for the San Antonio and South Texas health care and bioscience industry.
