Future Growth


CEO's Vision

Interview with Houston Chronicle, "The Vision of the Texas Medical Center's CEO" (8/4/13)



In 1999, Texas Medical Center, responding to the dramatic growth on campus, created a bold and comprehensive “Vision for Growth: A 50-Year Master Plan for the Institutions of the Texas Medical Center.” This plan established a framework to guide institutional growth and improve the physical environment of the Texas Medical Center.

Subsequently, additional master plans were developed to provide guidelines for hazard mitigation, pedestrian circulation, a skywalk system for the main campus, and storm water management. In 2006, the 50-Year Master Plan was updated.
