In accordance with its project timeline, CHRISTUS Spohn Health System has started its transformation project at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital-Shoreline with the demolition of the hospital’s parking garage at the corner of Elizabeth and 2nd streets.
The project — Our PATH Forward (People & Actions Transforming Healthcare) — includes the creation of about 420,000 square feet of new space and the removal of 320,000 square feet of aging buildings at Shoreline. The $325 million project — which includes the construction of the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Family Health Center at the current site of CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital-Memorial — will help CHRISTUS Spohn address health-care needs and continue to provide exceptional care in its 12-county service area for generations to come.
The demolition of the parking garage will take place over several weeks in January and early February to make way for an enhanced inpatient tower and expanded emergency department.
- A new inpatient tower with approximately 200 new patient beds
- A new and larger Emergency Department
- Graduate Medical Education Residency programs to train the health leaders of the future
- New public space including a new main entrance and two-story lobby
- A new Level II Trauma Center designed for efficiency and convenience
- Elizabeth Street enhancements and the creation of a Pedestrian Motor Court
- A new chapel
CHRISTUS Spohn broke ground on the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Family Health Center in late November, helping to pave the way for the 40,000-square-foot facility that will consolidate numerous services under one roof, including physician appointments, lab work, imaging and a drive-thru pharmacy.
- Greater access to care via walk-in-clinic with extended hours, six days a week
- Primary care services, chronic condition management, radiology laboratory and outpatient clinic pharmacy
- Wellness and prevention education for families
- Specialty clinics for Nueces Aid beneficiaries
- Benefits Resource Counselors
- Care Transition Counselors
