Inside the MARC

September 2009

World-class facility

At 250,000 square feet, the MARC features state-of-the-art clinics, diagnostic imaging, an ambulatory center, endoscopic suites, operating rooms, physician offices, a pharmacy and comfortable patient waiting and eating areas.

From front door to final exam, the MARC promises patients integrated health care with UT Medicine San Antonio specialists under one roof. Ultimately, patients will be able to park on site, visit their physicians, have blood tests, get X-rays and eat lunch while they wait to pick up their prescriptions. The environment is designed to consolidate services, simplify the process and put patients at ease.

Concierge-like service

The new Electronic Medical Records system will allow physicians, whether they're working in the building or on the other side of town, to access, monitor and update patient records and histories quickly and easily. To enhance the communication process further, new Clinical Information Systems software will enable members of the health care team to communicate with one another and with patients quickly and effectively from anywhere in the building.

Community investment

The MARC will complement community physicians who will be invited to refer complex cases to UT Medicine San Antonio specialists and subspecialists.
