UT MD Anderson Bates-Freeman Building
In 1977 ground was broken for M. D. Anderson's Lutheran Hospital Pavilion, a new outpatient clinic building, expanded radiotherapy center, new research laboratories, and the first chapel. These facilities, which were dedicated in 1976, more than doubled the size of the physical plant. The top floor of the hospital addition was a twenty-bed protected environment, the first such germ-free facility in the country for patients especially vulnerable to life-threatening infections while undergoing aggressive cancer therapies. Many patients admitted to the protected environment since then have received bone marrow transplants, which first were performed in 1975 at M. D. Anderson. In 1977 the research area was named the Bates-Freeman Building in recognition of William B. Bates and John H. Freeman, who were original trustees of the M. D. Anderson Foundation.

Particulate matter could find its way around the ceiling tile and grid with air movement. During a remodel of the facility, Ultra-San, a ceiling tile, with a built in gasket, was used to keep the environment sterile within this healthcare facility. The tile was chosen for its performance and as a value alternate to sealing each tile to the grid. The old method of using silicon to seal tile to grid does not allow for removal and reuse of the tile when plenum work is needed.
