The state-of-the-art structure that is the academic home to Mississippi’s flagship medical education program has officially received its new name: The Phil Bryant Medical Education Building.

During a ceremony on the University of Mississippi Medical Center campus, Gov. Bryant and First Lady Deborah Bryant unveiled a new sign on the front of the building.

Working with the Legislature, Gov. Bryant was instrumental in securing funding for the 151,000-square-foot, $76 million building. That support includes $10 million in federal Community Development Block Grant funding through the Mississippi Development Authority to launch the effort, as well as the governor’s help in securing $66 million in state bonds.

“There is no expression of gratitude that seems proper for this unique and auspicious occasion,” Gov. Bryant said. “My joy cannot be represented on an individual level, but as a collective accomplishment of everyone who had a hand in bringing this.”
