From 164 acres of wooded land, to a world-class medical center dedicated to the highest standards of patient care, research and education, the Texas Medical Center has come a long way.
In 1948, the future of the Texas Medical Center was shared in the Baylor University Round Up yearbook through an artist’s rendering. The gridded drawing with perfectly symmetrical trees shared the future of Houston, the College and medicine for more than Texans, but the entire United States.
Tomorrow, as Baylor College of Medicine celebrates 70 years in Houston, join us as we take a look back at our arrival in Houston, a new chapter in our history, decades of accolades, medical achievements and efforts to improve education, research and patient care.
