Jennie Sealy Hospital Tops Off
On February 27, the final beams of the new Jennie Sealy Hospital were lifted into place. Three beams signed by The Sealy & Smith Foundation, members of the Development Board and Family Campaign contributors were installed at the top of the stairwells on each tower, where they will remain visible to the public as a lasting reminder of how UTMB friends, faculty and staff supported the effort to build the new facility. The new hospital, scheduled to open in 2016, is just one of the many priorities of the UTMB Working Wonders Capital Campaign.

1959 School of Medicine Alumnus, Dr. Donald Red, Honors Late Wife With Gift to UTMB
To honor the memory of his wife, Jill, a 1958 graduate of the UTMB School of Nursing who died of lung cancer in 2011, Dr. Donald Red made a gift to UTMB to name two rooms in the new Jennie Sealy Hospital -- one after her and one after himself.
In 2016, Dr. Red, his four sons and their families intend to make a trip to Galveston to see the new hospital and the named rooms. The last time Dr. Red was in Galveston was in 2004 with his wife at his side.
