FORT WORTH – The University of Texas System is planning the UT Southwestern Monty and Tex Moncrief Medical Center at Fort Worth after receiving a $25 million donation from W.A. "Tex" Moncrief Jr.
This center is the UT System's first named campus outside of Dallas. It adds to UT Southwestern Medical Center's recent expansions at the Moncrief Center Institute.
The campus' first building will sit on 6.3 acres at the northwest corner of Pennsylvania Ave. and Main St. It is earmarked for UT Southwestern faculty specialty physicians. Construction is slated for completion in September 2016.
In all, the campus will include the newly acquired property, the new facility and the Moncreif Cancer Institute, which is on a nearby 3.4-acre site at 400 W. Magnolia Ave.
