Regents approve $95 million Medical Arts and Research Center

January 2006

The Health Science Centerís request to proceed with the financing and construction of a state-of-the-art ambulatory clinic was approved by The University of Texas System Board of Regents. The 190,000-square-foot Medical Arts and Research Center (MARC) is one of the Health Science Centerís latest initiatives to advance clinical medical education and care.

The MARC will serve the South Texas area by providing numerous specialists and offering programs that are being developed in conjunction with the University Health System, which includes the Health Science Centerís primary teaching hospital.

The new building will cost approximately $95 million and is expected to be completed in late 2008. It will be housed in the heart of the South Texas Medical Center, across the street from the Health Science Centerís Childrenís Cancer Research Institute.

"This is one of the most important initiatives the Health Science Center has undertaken," Dr. Cigarroa said. "It is a project that is in alignment with our strategic plans and with our long-range goals for the continued success of this academic health center. It will be a state-of-the-art facility and it will say Ďfirst-class medicineí in every aspect."
