Road to a Learning Health System


These developments are centered on the ‘learning health campus,’ which encompasses our planned Health Sciences Park, along with dedicated research space at the Texas Medical Center’s Helix Park and Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center’s new Fannin Tower on the McNair Campus housing the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center.

In a learning health system, data and analytics gained through clinical and basic research are put into practice to advance healthcare delivery and improve population health, while also incorporating the foundations of the system into the education of next-generation clinicians and scientists. Our learning health campus will allow us to achieve this healthcare model, with cutting-edge research, patient care and education facilities within steps of one another.

Fannin Tower – Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center
The 12-story Fannin Tower at Baylor St. Luke’s - McNair Campus will be the new clinical home for the nationally ranked Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Opening in spring 2023, the expanded cancer center will offer radiation therapy and other diagnostic and treatment services, as well as multiple specialized oncology clinics and an infusion center. The new tower will also house multiple outpatient services including radiology, endoscopy and an ambulatory surgery center. Among the new services expected to be offered at the new tower are a Pain Center and a Women’s Center for diagnostic breast imaging.
