Texas A&M System Regents Approve Renovation for Engineering Medical Building

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents on Thursday approved an $85 million building renovation for the new engineering health (EnMed) initiative.
The approval includes the partial renovation of an existing 18-story tower building in the Houston Texas Medical Center to support the multi-college health initiative.
“The EnMed building renovation will provide the space to support an innovative education model and development of new technologies and is sure to become a powerful tool to set the standard in health care excellence,” said Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp.
Renovation on approximately 144,000-square-feet of the building is set to begin December 2018, with an expected completion date of July 2020. The remaining square footage will be shelled until needed for future growth. The building will provide a variety of learning environments to support a new medical education model, including active-learning and seminar-style classrooms, a medical innovation space, a multidisciplinary teaching lab, study and lounge spaces, standardized patient/simulation space and an office suite.
EnMed, a collaboration between the College of Medicine and the College of Engineering in partnership with Houston Methodist Hospital, will create new types of health care professionals by combining an engineering approach with patient care to innovate new medical technology and processes. The program is currently being piloted at the Texas A&M University Health Science Center campus in Bryan-College Station.
