Vital Signs

New DHMC complex is to be named in honor of Dr. Koop

By Jennifer Durgin

Dr. C. Everett Koop, a Dartmouth alumnus and former U.S. surgeon general, took on big tobacco and talked openly about AIDS when few others would. His name was in the headlines then, and it will soon be emblazoned at DHMC—on a new research complex. "I take great pride in the fact that the four institutions concerned"—the Medical School, Hospital, Clinic, and College—were unanimous in the naming decision, said Koop at a celebration in his honor at DHMC.

The $140-million Koop Medical Science Complex will provide a new home for DMS's Center for the Evaluative Clinical Sciences and flexible lab space for translational research. Linking its two wings will be a gathering space to be called LeBaron Commons. For more on the complex, see this article.
