The Medical Arts & Research Center (MARC)
UT Medicine San Antonio has always given patients the opportunity to see the same doctors who teach and conduct world-class research in the School of Medicine at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. With more than 200 faculty physicians, the MARC provides a focal point for that expertise. But the benefits of the MARC go beyond the knowledge of its doctors. Convenience and continuity are also part of the MARC experience. "By its very design, the MARC cares for the whole patient," said William L. Henrich, MD, MACP, president of the Health Science Center. "The faculty-physicians of UT Medicine San Antonio are at the forefront of their profession, and the MARC makes collaboration among them seamless."
Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC)
In addition to state-of-the-art clinics and diagnostic imaging, the Medical Arts & Research Center (MARC) also offers outpatient surgery. The Ambulatory Surgical Center boasts four operating rooms, two endoscopy suites and "impressive technology," said Lee A. Carlisle, MD, anesthesiologist and medical director for the day surgery centers at both the MARC and the Cancer Therapy & Research Center.
The ASC has high-definition capabilities to support laparoscopies and endoscopies. All images displayed in an operating room are controlled from a nurse's station by touch screen. The center occupies the entire second floor and offers a private elevator with a separate entrance for surgery patients. Because the ambulatory surgery center serves an academic medical practice, it offers a full range of surgical specialties.
The Medical Arts and Research Building (MARC) is located at 8300 Floyd Curl Drive, on the corner of Charles Katz.
