METRORail Station – TMC Transit Center

The elements of this station pay tribute to the history of medical science and the individuals whose relentless curiosity has for thousands of years improved our quality of life. Placed within the Texas Medical Center, it implicitly connects the work of today’s pioneering clinicians, caregivers, and scientists to the discoveries of those who came before them. Running the length of the station is a timeline of medical history from 100 b.c. to the present, and 20 granite columns depict important individuals from the field of medicine from Hippocrates to Watson/Crick.
