HISTORY OF STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES
The very first Health Center at Texas A&M functioned out of tents. Photo Shown: Original Main Building on campus.
In the late 1880's, a one-story frame building was built to accommodate student health care services. Photo Shown: Historical photo of what is now Military Walk.
In 1896, the Infirmary was built. This was the second building to host healthcare services. Its Victorian architecture was typical of the 1890's, with columns, ornate rails and a porch across the front. Photo courtesy of Cushing Memorial Library and Archives.
In 1916, A&M's third health center was built. Photo courtesy of Cushing Memorial Library and Archives.
In October 1973, the fourth "hospital" was constructed and was named the A.P. Beutel Health Center. The building is still being used to treat Aggies and is still in its original location, on the north side of campus across from Sbisa Dining Hall.
During the 2015-2016 school year, a $1.6 million dollar renovation was completed dedicated toward patient care.
In April 2017, the SHS Pharmacy was completely remodeled and now has additional space and an increased amount of over-the-counter products to serve the students at Texas A&M University.
