Together We Made History The bold vision that the Health Science Center and our board undertook in launching The Campaign for the Future of Health has been realized. Together, we surpassed our transformational half-billiondollar goal and have left a mark that will make lives better for generations to come. It was my honor and privilege to serve as campaign chair with this distinguished group of community leaders and the strong support of President Henrich and his dedicated staff. Through the generosity of every donor who participated, the Health Science Center is positioned to rank among the most preeminent universities in the nation and to advance our distinct missions of education, biomedical research, patient care and community service. We have earned our place as the chief catalyst for San Antonioâ€™s growing $29.2 billion biosciences and health care industry, and the Health Science Center continues to impact the cityâ€™s economy in a substantial way through the competitive jobs it creates and the biomedical research discoveries that ease suffering and improve health. Most importantly are the lives that are made better because of these accomplishments. The students we educate at the Health Science Center are tomorrowâ€™s physicians, scientists, nurses, dentists and health care professionals who will achieve breakthrough discoveries, heal our sick and care for our community with compassion and excellence. The success of the campaign is evident in the phenomenal $607 million raised to support our faculty and students. But the most significant accomplishment is the noble purpose these funds support for patients and their families, friends and employers, and the immeasurable benefits to our community that make lives better. Thank you for your generosity, leadership and involvement in this vital and successful endeavor. This is our history in the making, and, together, we are building the future of health.

Research to Makes Lives Better Every day our Health Science Center researchers are translating biomedical discoveries into better ways to diagnose, prevent and treat disease. They create therapies and techniques that clinicians can apply to patients. Our faculty is recognized worldwide for landmark discoveries that are changing the face of medicine and patient care every day, especially for the health conditions that most impact individuals in the South Texas region. Kenneth Hargreaves, D.D.S., Ph.D., professor and chairman of endodontics and professor of pharmacology and physiology, is leading groundbreaking research in developing a new class of nonaddictive painkillers that holds tremendous promise for patients who suffer from severe or chronic pain, including burn and cancer patients and our military. He is the first holder of The USAA Foundation Presidentâ€™s Distinguished University Chair in Neurosciences.

The Faculty Drives Our Mission Investments in faculty fuel the future success of our university. Outstanding faculty members, such as Steven R. Bailey, M.D., the Janey Briscoe Distinguished Professor of Cardiovascular Research, provide our students with personalized one-on-one training, preparing them to become compassionate health care providers and innovative researchers who will advance cures in an array of serious conditions that threaten the health and wellness of our communities and our nation. 609 new faculty were recruited to our university during the campaign. The accomplishments of our faculty inspire excellence.
Endowments support the efforts of our faculty. 233 new endowments were established by donors to our campaign, including 81 endowed chairs and professorships and 152 scholarship and program endowments. Each year, in perpetuity, the Health Science Center endowment will earn more than
$22 million to invest in our missions. Faculty excellence drives the success of our university. The Health Science Center has 7 faculty members who have been elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine. Members are selected based on their major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care and public health. v v v v v v v

Transformational Achievements Bill Greehey and the Greehey Family Foundation A $25 million lead gift in 2007 from The Greehey Family Foundation launched our campaign, and the Foundation’s second gift of $5 million in 2013 pushed us over our campaign goal. The Greehey President’s Endowment for Excellence in Children’s Health Sciences supports cancer research and educational and community programs that benefit children, especially those in greatest need. Construction of the Greehey Cancer Laboratories in our South Texas Research Facility added to the strength of our cancer programs. In 2013, Bill Greehey and his family were honored at the President’s Gala and announced their second gift to the campaign. This gift established the Greehey President’s Fund to support faculty recruitment in medicine and dentistry, as well as faculty and student programs that provide patient care to those in greatest need. In addition, community gifts to our gala established a new endowment, The Greehey Family Foundation Endowment for Community Service. The transformational support from the Greehey family is recognized by the naming of the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute and the Greehey Academic and Research Campus.
The Future of Health is Education The UT Health Science Center is the pipeline for the health care providers of this region. Since we were founded a half-century ago, more than 29,000 graduates from our five professional schools have become the doctors, nurses, dentists and health professionals who are caring for the patients of this region and beyond, and leading breakthrough research to make lives better. Because the South Texas region is among the most medically underserved in the United States, the Health Science Center and its graduates are filling a vital need for the future of health.
Joe and Teresa Lozano Long In 2008, philanthropists Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long made a transformational gift of $25 million to the UT Health Science Center. The Joe R. and Teresa L. Long Scholarship Research and Teaching Fund is an endowment that supports more than 50 students each year in medicine, nursing, graduate biosciences and physician assistant studies. It also supports the faculty who teach our students and the research programs that advance discovery and cures, especially in diabetes and other health conditions prevalent in South Texas. This gift to the campaign established the largest endowment in the history of our university and named the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Campus.
Expanding Our Footprint Over the past 10 years, the UT Health Science Center has doubled its footprint to more than 5 million square feet of space in San Antonio and South Texas. The construction of the South Texas Research Facility (STRF) and the addition of the Cancer Therapy & Research Center were strategic in advancing the overall strength of our university missions. The universityâ€™s South Texas campuses paved the way for the establishment of a new school of medicine in the Rio Grande Valley. Construction of the STRF was a primary goal of the campaign, accomplished with private gifts, tuition revenue bonds and the permanent university fund. The Medical Arts & Research Center (MARC) was not funded by our campaign. However, its mission of patient care, through the physicians of UT Medicine, exponentially enhanced the ability of the Health Science Center to translate therapies and cures discovered in the laboratories of the STRF into care for patients today. Underway is construction of a new Center for Oral Health Care & Research in conjunction with our Dental School. It is adjacent to the MARC and the CTRC. We are also building a state-of-the-art Academic Learning & Teaching Center for inter-professional training of students from all five schools â€” the health care professional teams of the future. In addition to funds counted toward the campaign, the Health Science Center secured $158 million in permanent university funds and $38 million in tuition revenue bonds for other projects.
The CTRC Foundation The largest gift to our campaign — and in our history — was the contribution of the Cancer Therapy & Research Center to the university by the CTRC Foundation. In addition to the in-kind gift of buildings and equipment, the Foundation made a cash gift of $24.5 million and an annual commitment to support faculty and programs through grants and endowments. The CTRC is one of 68 cancer centers in the United States holding the prestigious distinction as a National Cancer institute-designated cancer center — the only one in South Texas. The transformational gift from the CTRC Foundation substantially strengthened our leadership in cancer research and care, allowing us to better serve some of our most critically ill patients in this region.

Delivering Value to Our Community The gift of good health defines our quality of life. Whether it is our own health challenge or that of an aging parent, a spouse with heart disease, or a child with diabetes or cancer, we are all touched by someone in need of major health care. The Health Science Center is dedicated to caring for those who need it most, including people who cannot afford health care. We produce and translate biomedical research into patient care that saves lives, and we educate the next generation of health care professionals — the faces we will trust in tomorrow’s clinics, emergency rooms, surgical suites and health science centers. Our students are the future leaders in medicine, health and research. Joel Torres, M.D., a native of the Rio Grande Valley and Long Presidential Scholar, is a first generation college graduate who was inspired to go to medical school at the age of five when he lost his father to an unknown illness: “Sometimes saying ‘thank you’ isn’t enough to show appreciation to people as generous as Mr. Joe and Teresa Lozano Long. They gave me a wonderful gift, not only financially, but also the gift of their trust that today I can honor by being the best physician I can be.” Our mission has remained steadfast and become increasingly vital. For the first time in two centuries, the life expectancy of Americans is predicted to be shortened by up to five years because of diseases like diabetes that are reaching epidemic proportions. At the same time, vulnerable populations like the elderly, are increasing at record levels. The Campaign for the Future of Health will have a positive, lasting and life-changing impact on our most precious commodity — our health.
A Vision for the Future Congratulations to everyone who played a role in the completion and success of our historic Campaign for the Future of Health. Your collective efforts have catapulted our UT Health Science Center to the next level of prominence. I continue to be humbled by the outpouring of generosity in time and financial resources from our donors and community leaders. I am inspired by their dedication to improving the future of health. The byproduct of their efforts is hope, and the beneficiaries are our patients and students. One cannot predict who will lead the next major scientific breakthrough. But what motivates us is the sure hope that, among our 1,900 faculty and 3,300 medical, dental, nursing and health professions students, there is someone who will make a major scientific or clinical breakthrough and solve a difficult, seemingly impossible problem, thereby saving millions of lives. Although the path to deciphering some of our most vexing health challenges may seem daunting at times, the spirit and support of our community is the light that leads us on this uphill journey. Together, we tread with unwavering resolve, on our quest to make lives better. On the horizon is our vision for a future of health that is filled with promise. Our journey has just begun. We treasure the hope each of you bestows on us. Thank you for your partnership that ennobles our work every day.
