Facts

  • Because of the building's sharp angles, the view from the Riverwalk presents an optical illusion that the facing wall is one-dimensional.
  • Among the famous people born in this building are Carol Burnett, Oliver North, and San Antonio's most famous mayor, Henry Cisneros.
  • At its completion this was the largest and tallest hospital in the United States. It was also the only hospital with doctor's offices, hospital beds, and a parking garage all in one building.
