UTMB is in the midst of a $1.2 billion revitalization with about 200 construction projects. Repairs to existing buildings damaged during the storm are about 90 percent done, but rather than just rebuild and fix what had been there before, UTMB’s Mike Shriner said leadership asked the architects and engineers to identify what was worth restoring and what, perhaps, needed to be repurposed. Even while so much work is going on, the university has forged ahead with its main functions. The student body has grown from about 2,200 five years ago to more than 3,000 today, Shriner said. Patient volumes are up, and research work continues, he added. [Note: Paid subscription required. Please contact public.affairs@utmb.edu for more information.]
