What's happening today?
Construct buildings for education, administration and research
An education/administration building and a research building are planned and will be funded through the UT System Board of Regents. The buildings will probably be located near the current site of University Medical Center Brackenridge and the university's School of Nursing.
Construct a new teaching hospital
Seton has committed at least $250 million – a portion of which will come from fundraising --- to build a new teaching hospital to replace the aging University Medical Center Brackenridge. The hospital will serve as the medical school’s primary clinical in-patient teaching facility and enhance services to residents of Central Texas. It will also upgrade the only Level I adult trauma center for a populous and growing 11-county area.
Prepare a master plan that includes space for the development of private-industry medical ventures
A team that includes the UT System, The University of Texas at Austin, Seton Healthcare Family and Central Health is developing a master site plan for the placement of the school, the new teaching hospital, clinics and a medical office building. The area being studied is beyond the southeast corner of the university's campus, generally south of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, west of Interstate 35 and east of Trinity Street, including the current site of University Medical Center at Brackenridge. The goal of the effort is to accommodate current needs while allowing for growth. The master plan also is being coordinated with the State of Texas, which is working on a master plan for state property in the adjacent Capitol area. Among the many planning dimensions are transportation, utilities, flooding and environmental concerns and general urban design.
