For more than 100 years, the Central Health Downtown Campus has served the medical needs of Austin, Travis County, and surrounding areas. Today, the 14.3-acre Downtown Campus resides at the heart of Austin’s most dynamic downtown areas – the University of Texas at Austin Medical District, the Texas Capitol Complex, Downtown Austin, historic East Central Austin and Waterloo Park – and holds the potential to connect our communities.
The location of the Downtown Campus – combined with the relocation in 2017 of University Medical Center Brackenridge hospital operations from the campus to the Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas – offers an unprecedented redevelopment opportunity for Central Health with the potential to greatly benefit all of the residents of Travis County in the years to come. It is Central Health’s intention that the campus continues to support our mission while also aligning with the synergy of the surrounding transformation. We are proud to present the Downtown Campus Master Plan as a vision of what the Downtown Campus may become, and some of the ways it can continue to serve our community.
