UT Southwestern Medical Center’s William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital opened in December 2014, transforming the opportunities for medical care in North Texas. A state-of-the-art hospital unlike any other, it was built on the firm foundation of one big idea: Every aspect was designed to enhance the patient’s care and experience.

To meet a greater-than-expected need for specialty patient care in North Texas and the surrounding states, UT Southwestern is undertaking a $480 million expansion of the hospital. Scheduled to open in 2020, a 12-story third tower will serve as the clinical home for the Peter O’Donnell Jr. Brain Institute, consolidate acute inpatient care services currently provided at Zale Lipshy University Hospital, and add operating rooms, interventional suites, a newly expanded Emergency Department, and two new parking facilities. The project enhances both the quality of care and the efficiency of delivery to reduce expenses while accommodating growth.

As a hospital within an academic medical center, Clements University Hospital is a centerpiece for carrying out UT Southwestern’s three-part mission – to heal, innovate, and educate.

It’s a place where the intellect, skill, and science of UT Southwestern are translated into the delivery of compassionate patient care.
