The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth (HSC Fort Worth) is a recipient of the Fort Worth Beautiful Award for 2020-2021.

“I am very proud of the work put in by our Grounds Team which consists of Riaz Dhanji, Raul Cano, and Ignacio Rodriguez,” said Seth Willmoth, Executive Director, Facilities Management at HSC.
