Texas Tech Univer­sity Health Sci­ences Cen­ter is home to some of the most cut­ting-edge re­search be­ing un­der­taken in the coun­try, from how to best treat pe­di­atric leukemia, to drug use safety for preg­nant and lac­tat­ing women.

Al­ready heav­ily in­vested in the city, Bell He­li­copter con­tin­ues to ex­pand its Amar­illo Mil­i­tary Air­craft Assem­bly Cen­ter, where ap­prox­i­mately 1,000 em­ploy­ees build, among oth­ers, the rev­o­lu­tion­ary V-22 Osprey, the world’s first pro­duc­tion tiltro­tor air­craft, lend­ing it­self to uses rang­ing from de­fense to dis­as­ter re­lief.

Down­town Amar­illo hums with the sounds of con­struc­tion, in­clud­ing a state-ofthe-art mul­tipur­pose event cen­ter slated to open in 2019. Among other venues, this will house a mi­nor league base­ball sta­dium cer­tain to bring pro­fes­sional base­ball back to Amar­illo.
