TWU Houston Center Building Campaign

TWU Institute of Health Sciences-Houston Center

Rendering of New Houston CampusAfter 45 years at 1130 John Freeman Blvd., in the Texas Medical Center, Texas Woman’s University opened its new Institute of Health Sciences-Houston Center in August, 2006 at 6700 Fannin, in the heart of Houston’s prestigious Medical Center.

TWU's new Institute of Health Sciences- Houston Center is a state-of-the-art, 10-story, 202,000 square-foot “campus in one building.” It is designed to house the existing and future professional programs in a multi-disciplinary academic environment. TWU’s Institute of Health Sciences-Houston Center is the only institution at the Texas Medical Center that educates the complete group of disciplines associated with the called-for team-approach in patient care.

This new Institute allows TWU the opportunity to dramatically increase enrollment which will help Texas address the workforce crisis of needing more nurses and other healthcare professionals. From fall 1999 to fall 2004, TWU-Houston’s enrollment increased 50.6%, straining existing facilities. TWU currently graduates more healthcare professionals than any other higher education institution in Texas.

Unique to the greater metropolitan Houston and Galveston area, TWU graduates healthcare professionals at the baccalaureate and higher level in nursing, occupational and physical therapy, nutrition and food science (RD program), Health Care Administration and offers all these professionals a minor in library science on campus.
