Here in San Antonio Texas we have only two. We are like the 7th largest city in the Nation. We used to have three but than we lost the 3rd one Wilford Hall Medical Center when we merged the trauma care with Brooke Army Medical Center. According to the trauma surgeons in the medical community they said that the loss of Wilford Hall would not harm patient care.
