DALLAS (AP) - The new University Hospital being built for the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas will be named for former Gov. Bill Clements.

A UT Southwestern statement Thursday says the new William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital is scheduled to open in late 2014. Clements is being honored for his $100 million gift in 2009 to UT Southwestern, which is the largest single gift in the medical school’s 59-year history.

Together with the existing Zale Lipshy University Hospital, the $800 million, 460-bed Clements facility will support the medical school’s research, education and training activities.

The new hospital will replace the former St. Paul University Hospital.
