The MARC of excellence
Medical Arts & Research Center puts patients first

April 2010

by Sheila Hotchkin

The opening of the striking, eight-story Medical Arts & Research Center (MARC) has brought added visibility to UT Medicine San Antonio - and to the advantages of academic medicine.

The UT Medicine San Antonio practice plan has always given patients the opportunity to see the same doctors who teach and conduct world-class research in the School of Medicine at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

With more than 200 faculty physicians, the MARC provides a focal point for that expertise. But the benefits of the MARC go beyond the knowledge of its doctors. Convenience and continuity are also part of the MARC experience.

A patient can see general practitioners and specialists, undergo diagnostic testing and have outpatient surgery all in the same building. And UT Medicine San Antonio is always looking to add new innovations - like patient navigators, who serve as advocates for patients.

"By its very design, the MARC cares for the whole patient," said William L. Henrich, M.D., MACP, president of the Health Science Center. "The faculty-physicians of UT Medicine San Antonio are at the forefront of their profession, and the MARC makes collaboration among them seamless."

To schedule an appointment or to refer a patient to a UT Medicine San Antonio physician, call (210) 450-9000. Or, visit www.utmedicine.org for more information.
