What: Central Health invites community members and stakeholders to participate in a discussion and provide feedback regarding the Central Health Brackenridge Campus redevelopment in advance of two upcoming hearings before the City of Austin in January. At the meeting, Central Health will provide an update about the ongoing redevelopment effort, while continuing to gather input from the community about its vision for the future of the 14.3-acre property. Central Health is committed to transforming the property to a sustainable, mixed-use development fostering innovation, promoting health and community, and helping fund access to health care for low-income Travis County residents.
Central Health will discuss the potential land-use overlay for the property, which is pending before the City of Austin Planning Commission. Central Health will also share an update on the proposed public marketplace, projected timeline for redevelopment, and information on the transition of health services including those from University Medical Center Brackenridge (UMCB) to the new Dell Seton Medical Center Brackenridge at The University of Texas in May 2017.
Key Visuals: Community members may view renderings of proposed campus concepts and engage in conversations with members of the planning team. Note: The meeting will be live-streamed at www.CentralHealthCampus.net
When: Jan. 12, 2017; 5:30-7 p.m.
Where: Central Health Board Room, 1111 E. Cesar Chavez St., Austin
Background: Over the past two years, Central Health has worked with the community to develop a vision and master plan for the redevelopment of the historic Central Health Brackenridge Campus, a downtown property that has been the site of Austin’s and Travis County’s public hospital for more than 100 years. The redevelopment of the Brackenridge Campus is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Central Health, which owns the property, to create a community asset that supports our vital mission of improving the access and quality of health care for those who need it most.
