The Temple Medical & Education District (TMED) is an effort that the City of Temple joined in partnership with key public and private entities to jointly promote the education and medical activities of Scott & White, the Veterans Administration, Temple College, Temple Health and Bioscience District, and Texas A&M Health Science Center. Also, TMED will advance the redevelopment of both residential and commercial neighborhoods surrounding the campuses. This community-wide redevelopment effort is aimed at ensuring the long term economic vitality of this critical area in Temple, Texas.
The vision for the TMED is to enhance and protect the existing opportunities for medical, educational, research-related activity in the area, while identifying new public and private sector investment for the area. The concept creates a “university village” which includes student and employee housing, retail, dining, medical education, improved public and higher education, research centers, medical services, hike and bike trails, performing arts center, transportation services, and the necessary infrastructure to promote the investment of public and private sector funds to improve the overall TMED area.
