Expected completion: Spring 2009
Size: 250,000 square feet (includes 11 clinic areas, a 13,000-square-foot diagnostic imaging center and a 30,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center consisting of four endoscopic suites, six operating rooms, and supporting spaces such as presurgical preparation and recovery areas)
Cost: $95 million
Ingredients for success:
The ambulatory center will be the practice site of UT Medicine San Antonio, which consists of Health Science Center physicians and is the largest multi-specialty practice group in South Texas. Plans are to consolidate clinic operations from several locations currently leased throughout the Medical Center area, including the Diagnostic Pavilion on Medical Drive. Incorporating all specialties under one roof promises to benefit patients and increase efficiency of care and education. This ambulatory clinic, which will train future clinicians, is vital because ambulatory care is the care of the future. The goal is "first-class medicine in every aspect." Expanded proposed services will include: primary care, orthopaedics, cardiopulmonary care, digestive disease care and surgery, allergy, dermatology, endocrinology, infectious diseases, nephrology, neurology, urology, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, and diagnostic services such as radiology and a heart station.
