Denton: TMU broke ground on its landmark new $107 million health sciences center.

The Texas Woman’s University in Denton broke ground Friday morning on Its milestone new $107 million health sciences center.

It’s trusted the structure will assist with growing medical care education and act as a middle for community and rural health efforts.

The 136,000-square-foot office will serve students in the partnered health care fields including nursing, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.

It will have cutting-edge labs, homerooms, cooperative work areas, open-air facility locales, a teaching kitchen, as well as community health care clinics and training spaces for students.

Leaders with the college said they’ve incorporated some lessons mastered during the pandemic.

“Really having one of those first facilities where we’re seamlessly seeing patients, we can see face to face patient followed by a telepatient or remote patient and having that integrated both into and into actual clinical practice I think is an innovation and I think it’s unique and I think it’s a differentiator for our students,” said Christopher Ray, the dean of the College of Health Sciences at TWU.

The new structure is a part of a $125 million Dream Big campaign.

It’s the university’s first comprehensive fundraising campaign celebrating the university’s 125th anniversary.

Funds raised will support TWU’s continued growth and leadership development in health sciences, financial and business services, entrepreneurship, technology, and aviation.
