Baylor College of Medicine Medical Center Opens

Phase 1 complete. Gastroenterology, orthopedics, PM&R, and urology have moved in. Included in Phase 1 is the Bobby R. Alford Educational Center, which will be the setting for seminars, conferences and Grand Rounds, and the Comprehensive Healthcare Clinic for BCM's corporate wellness program. The Duncan Cancer Center, general surgery, vascular surgery, otolaryngology and cardiology departments will follow in Phase 2 (Fall 2014). The BCM Medical Center will be a prime location for internal medicine resident training in the future -- essentially our university hospital.

The BCM Medical Center opened as the second patient care facility on the McNair Campus, a 35-acre tract adjacent to the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center. Already fully operational was the Lee and Joe Jamail Specialty Care Center, which includes the medical practices of psychiatry, ophthalmology, dermatology, plastic surgery and the Alzheimer's clinic.
