The Texas Tech University System Board of Regents approved the donation of five acres of land from Amarillo Area Foundation (AAF) to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) in Amarillo. The value of the land is $1.25 million and is located west of the current TTUHSC campus at 1400 South Coulter.

“As our community grows, we want to continue our efforts, as well, to better serve the health care needs in this region,” TTUHSC President Lori Rice-Spearman, Ph.D., said. “Our community partners such as Amarillo Area Foundation are key to making that happen and realizing our vision to transform health care through innovation and collaboration.”

As TTUHSC begins initial steps to embark on a campus expansion in Amarillo and consolidate operations to the Coulter campus, there will be an immediate need to relocate campus support services. This land will be developed with those needs top of mind.

“The Board of the Harrington Regional Medical Campus is thrilled to see the continued investment by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in the future of our region,” Clay Stribling, president and CEO of Amarillo Area Foundation, said. “The gift continues our commitment to a partnership with the Texas Tech University System and their vision for medical, pharmacy and veterinary education.”
