San Antonio will host soon its second medical
The University of the Incarnate Word's President
Lou Agnese, PhD, says they're opening a new medical
"That is for sure, you can put that
in the bank."
Agnese says with a growing demand
for health care professionals, along with
the nation's aging
population, it makes sense.
"We have a School of Nursing,
Health Professions, a School of Optemetry
and Physical Therapy ... this would be
the crown jewel."
"We had our meeting last Friday
of the board of trustees of the
university and we brought a recommendation
from the administration to go ahead
with the next phase
which would be the formal feasibility
study," he says.
It will be a school of osteopathy
graduating doctors schooled
in an holistic approach.
Agnese says they're
scouting locations now.
"Either by the 5 hospitals downtown,
the second at Brooks City Base,
the third near Ft. Sam at East
Walters and I 35."
The fourth possible location
would be at the Medical Center.
If all goes as planned
school is slated to open
