The Center for Brain Health

UT Health San Antonio is building the first-of-its-kind center for patients and their families.

This $100 million construction will advance research and provide innovative care of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, related dementias, movement disorders, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Connecting to innovative care

A team of neurologists, psychologists, radiologists and other professionals in the Center for Brain Health will align closely with the neighboring large outpatient practice at UT Health San Antonio’s Medical Arts and Research Center (MARC).

This connectivity and integration will allow patients and families to see a neurologist in the Center for Brain Health, then pass through an enclosed walkway to the MARC for appointments with a cardiologist, nephrologist or other specialist as needed.
