Dallas-based medical complex UT Southwestern will expand its operations in Fort Worth with a $25 million gift from oilman W.A. “Tex” Moncrief Jr., reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The planned UT Southwestern Monty and Tex Moncrief Medical Center is scheduled to be completed in September 2016 on a 6.3-acre site near the existing Moncrief Cancer Institute, which joined the University of Texas-affiliated institution in 1999.
The donor is the son of the late wildcatter W.A. “Monty” Moncrief, who drilled one of the first major oil wells in East Texas. The Moncrief family has given about $89 million in the past to support UT Southwestern programs and facilities in Dallas and Fort Worth.
