​​FORT WORTH - The University of Texas System expands to Fort Worth with the new UT Southwestern Monty and Tex Moncrief Medical Center at Fort Worth, after receiving a $25 million donation from W.A. "Tex" Moncrief Jr.

The center is the UT System's first named campus outside of Dallas. It builds on UT Southwestern Medical Center's recent expansions at the Moncrief Center Institute within Fort Worth's Medical District.

The new campus adds onto Fort Worth's strategic goals of making the health care industry a top priority to the city. .

The campus' first building will sit on 6.3 acres at the northwest corner of Pennsylvania Ave. and Main St. 

Construction is slated for completion in September 2016.

In all, the campus will include the newly acquired property, the new facility and the Moncrief Cancer Institute — which is on a nearby 3.4-acre site at 400 W. Magnolia Ave.
