William F. McKeon is the president and CEO of the Texas Medical Center.

One of the most transformative occasions in the 70-plus-year history of the Texas Medical Center took place on April 23, 2018.

State and local leaders, together with leaders of the TMC, announced the launch of TMC3, a new multi- institution research campus that will foster collaboration amid a culture of competition. The campus will be situated south of the medical center’s clinical campus.

Decades from now, we will look back on this date as a historic moment for the Texas Medical Center, the city of Houston and the great state of Texas.

Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas, is seated in front at the TMC3 announcement on April 23, 2018.
