About Chris

Hello. I am Chris, also known as Dr. James H. Henderson II. I am husband to Juli, and father of Jessica, Eliotte Nicole, James III, Victoria, and Robert (deceased). I am also proud to be father-in-law to Ryan, Eliotte’s husband. Juli allows me to think that I had something to do with the incredible accomplishments of our children, but I know better.

I am currently a Critical Care Intensivist at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa (CSR) Westover Hills Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, while serving as a Member of the South Texas Regional Advisory Council Pandemic Medical Operations Workgroup. I am Board Certified in Critical Care, Pulmonary Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Sleep Medicine. I presently serve as President of Medical Staff at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospitals, President of CSR Family Health Center, and a member of the Board of Directors of the Family Health Center. Additionally, I am Director of Inpatient Services for the program and Chairman of its Clinical Competency Committee. I also serve as an Adjunct Assistant Professor for the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) Department of Family and Community Medicine. I entered my present position after more than 26 years of service in the United States Air Force Medical Corps, retiring in July 2011 at the rank of Colonel.

Along with Juli, I have the honor of sharing the joys and challenges of families struggling with life unexpected.
