UIW Kicks Off Renovations for New Medical School Facility at Brooks City Base

November 8, 2014

“Last year, we set a goal to open a new medical school in San Antonio and today we are well on our way to achieving that goal,” said UIW President Dr. Lou Agnese. “We raise the flag of the University of the Incarnate Word to show that we will continue the legacy that was created here decades ago by building another state-of-the-art facility that will train primary care doctors to serve San Antonio and underserved areas throughout South Texas.”

Many dignitaries joined UIW President Dr. Lou Agnese, Brooks City Base President & CEO Leo Gomez and Board Member Manuel Villa including San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor, City Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran, Congressman Lloyd Doggett and other local leaders for a ceremonial flag raising on Brooks City Base.

The newest UIW location is located in the northwest corner of Brooks City Base in an area known as “The Hill,” a local historic district which previously housed the U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine. Plans provide four buildings and 245 parking spaces on approximately 16.45 acres, with a possible expansion to add an adjacent 6.41 acres, three more buildings and 213 additional parking spaces. The entire plan involves approximately 23 acres and seven buildings that can be adapted to provide classrooms, laboratories, administrative and faculty offices, a student center, and an auditorium.
