As Houston’s only Level 1 trauma center with air ambulance capabilities and a verified burn center, Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center provides a vital safety net for Southeast Texas. As the community grows and patient volumes increase, Memorial Hermann and the Texas Trauma Institute continue to operate at capacity and will be unable to keep up with the demand for services.

Houston is fortunate to have one of the finest trauma programs in the world. However, it takes a monumental amount of resources, both private and public, to ensure our community has the level of care necessary for those who need it.

Breaking New Ground is a $200 million campaign which will allow Memorial Hermann to meet the current and future critical care needs of Houston and the surrounding region. The campaign includes $150 million to support the renovation and expansion project at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center. The additional $50 million will support programmatic needs associated with the Texas Trauma Institute.
