The Frist Health Center will be more than twice as large as the McCosh Health Center, the current home of University Health Services (UHS), and will incorporate a renovated Eno Hall with a significant new addition to the south. Scheduled to open in 2025, the Frist Health Center will help the University advance a culture of health and well-being on the Princeton campus.

“This extraordinary gift from Tommy Frist has enabled us to reimagine the University health facility as a place of welcome that offers a comprehensive approach to student health and well-being,” said President Christopher L. Eisgruber ’83. “I am delighted that the Frist family’s legacy in healthcare innovation will now be reflected in the spectacular Frist Health Center. The University is deeply grateful to Tommy and the Frist family for their visionary partnership on this project and, when considered along with the Frist Campus Center, for their incalculable and enduring impact on our campus community.”
