VIPs pose for a photo across the street from development of a new medical education and research complex on the Edinburg/McAllen boundary line on Dove/Owassa. Doctors Hospital at Renaissance is developing the complex in conjunction with UT-Rio Grande Valley and will be calling it Doctors Hospital at Renaissance South Campus.
Dr. Francisco Fernandez, dean of the UT-Rio Grande Valley School of Medicine, spoke outside Doctors Hospital at Renaissance on Tuesday about a new medical education and research complex being built in McAllen. He said the research will focus on genomics science. “We will seek to unravel the basis of certain diseases,” Fernandez said.
Speaking about a new medical education and research complex, Israel Rocha, CEO of Doctors Hospital at Renaissance, said just as the Rio Grande Valley is the front door to the United States it can also be the “front door to scientific discovery.” He said the new complex will bring “a hope for a new type of medicine for South Texas.”
McAllen Mayor Jim Darling is pictured across the street from development of a new medical education and research complex in north McAllen. Darling said the City of McAllen purchased 50 acres of land for $16 million and is donating up to ten acres to UT-RGV. The rest, he said, will be developed by Doctors Hospital at Renaissance.
