Texas Woman’s will have a new, more than $100 million health sciences building on its Denton campus by 2025. Once completed, the facility will be one of its kind in the North Texas region and will serve as an interprofessional teaching and training space that supports rural and urban communities.

“Projects of this magnitude have the potential for extraordinary impact,” says Texas Woman’s Chancellor and President Carine M. Feyten. “This future facility will play a key role in meeting the fast-growing demand for health care workers in Texas by graduating highly skilled professionals and offering expanded clinical care for our communities.”

Groundbreaking for the state-of-the-art building is slated for fall 2023. Its location, adjacent to the residential Parliament Village, will expand the campus to the east.

The building will fulfill a major part of the university’s strategic plan to serve and support local communities. It will also support a TWU priority — training highly qualified students to serve in rural and urban health care settings. The future 136,000-square-foot facility will feature student-focused learning through teaching labs, a simulation center and a comprehensive community clinic.

The new facility will unite the university’s five colleges through interdisciplinary programming. Also housed within the new building will be the clinics that undergird the College of Health Sciences’ nationally ranked, prestigious programs. To meet the growing demands of the Texas workforce, “we plan to graduate over 30% more nursing and health care professionals,” says Feyten.

The planned expansions within the College of Health Sciences and the College of Nursing at TWU reflect the tremendous success of their programs and the rising demand for qualified practitioners. “The new building will continue TWU’s legacy of health care innovation, which will benefit students and Texans for decades to come,” says College of Health Sciences Dean Christopher T. Ray.
