UTMB celebrates Jennie Sealy Hospital milestone

UTMB reached a major milestone on Feb. 27, when the final beams were placed in the Jennie Sealy Hospital on the Galveston campus. Three beams—signed by The Sealy & Smith Foundation, Development Board and Family Campaign contributors—were lifted to the top of the stairwells on each tower, where they will remain visible to the public as a lasting reminder of how UTMB contributors, friends, faculty and staff worked together to ensure advanced health sciences education, research and patient care for Texas well into the future. We look forward to opening Jennie Sealy Hospital to patients and their families in 2016. In the meantime, you can watch the ongoing construction on UTMB’s webcams.
