UT Health North Campus Tyler
UT Health North Campus Tyler is the clinical arm of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler - both are located at the US highway 271 location. The land that is now the site of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler has a rich history of commitment and dedication to patient care and community health. From its early beginnings in 1943 as the site of the 1,000-bed Camp Fannin Army hospital during World War II through decades of fighting against pulmonary diseases like tuberculosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and asbestosis, UT Health Science Center has served the citizens of Texas with distinction.
On September 2017, an exciting public announcement was made that would forever change patient care in Northeast Texas. East Texas Medical Center Regional Healthcare System announced they had selected The University of Texas System and UT Health Northeast, along with Ardent Health Services, to purchase their regional system of hospitals, clinics and emergency centers, rehabilitation facilities, trauma care network, home health services, a behavioral health center, along with regional Air 1 and ambulance transport services. The purchase was finalized on March 1, 2018.
Under the banner of UT Health East Texas, the new 10-hospital health system is governed by a 10-member board of directors with Dr. Kirk Calhoun, President of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, serving as chair. The board provides governance and strategic oversight for UT Health East Texas while Ardent Health Services maintains majority ownership and manages the day-to-day operations of the clinical/patient-care enterprise. Dr. Calhoun will also continue to lead the academic and research mission of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler.
As UT Health Science Center continues to build on making its dreams a reality, the tradition of excellence and public service that began with a barracks hospital 75 years ago remains a core commitment today. With exceptional patient care, comprehensive education, and innovative research, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler and UT Health East Texas combine to serve as the university medical center for Northeast Texas and beyond.
