Welcome to the Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) Hospital, a well-established partner to The University of Texas Medical School at Houston. However, it was not always so. Our history-making partnership, dating back to 1990, began as follows.
The Lyndon Baines Johnson Hospital, owned and operated by the Harris Health System, is the second primary teaching facility for The University of Texas Medical School at Houston. This 332-bed hospital opened in 1989 and is a full-service general hospital with easy access for the indigent patients it serves. Health care services for the hospital district are provided by Affiliated Medical Services (a nonprofit organization composed of UT faculty), which staffs LBJ, and Baylor College of Medicine, which staffs Ben Taub General Hospital.
