Houston Methodist’s Journey in the Texas Medical Center
December 5 | 15:45 - 16:30 pm
The Texas Medical Center (TMC) has become the largest medical center in the world and Houston Methodist, has grown with it, now encompassing more than approximately five million square feet. This rapid growth was largely in response to five key factors: the demise of Methodist’s long-standing academic relationship with Baylor College of Medicine, the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, aging infrastructure, changing demographics, and the need to adopt a more flexible and adaptable approach to capital projects. Tushar Gupta will discuss the journey of Houston Methodist in the Texas Medical Center.
