Doubling down on its commitment to patient-centered care, William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital unveiled its new third tower last month. A technology-infused example of human centered design, the new building expands the five-year-old hospital’s capacity and adds dedicated care facilities for an array of neuroscience and brain-related specialties.
UT Southwestern Medical Center leaders officially opened the new addition with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on December 3, 2020. Because of social-distancing requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public was invited to join the celebration remotely via video.
“This remarkable facility embodies UT Southwestern’s commitment to exceptional patient care,” said Dr. Daniel K. Podolsky, President of UT Southwestern. “As we celebrate this milestone, we understand that what makes this building truly special is the dedication, compassion and expertise of those working here to provide outstanding care and comfort to our patients and their families. The newly expanded Clements University Hospital provides an environment that helps make that possible.”
Construction of the patient-centered facility was supported by the UT Southwestern community. Throughout the hospital, waiting areas, operating rooms and other care spaces bear the mark of those whose generosity brought the project to fruition. Philanthropy’s impact is evident from the moment you step inside.
