The Temple Medical and Education District (TMED) is both a physical area and an initiative established by the City of Temple. The TMED partners integrated a master plan in 2010 encompassing 2,240 acres of land adjacent to downtown Temple that includes Temple College, the Temple campus of the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System, the main campus of Baylor Scott & White Health, the Temple ISD Travis Science Academy, and the City of Temple Parks and Recreation Center. And today, the THBD Office and Laboratory Facility is located in the heart of the TMED District.
The goals of the TMED are to enhance the identity of the District, redevelop residential and commercial area within the District, and brand an important part of the community. By doing so, Temple aims to attract additional biotechnology-related businesses to Temple and to enable the healthcare and medical education systems to work together more cohesively, thereby fostering a thriving industry set up for long-term success. THBD is pleased to be a participant in the evolution of the TMED District and works with other entities to see the TMED vision become reality.
