Ground breaking celebrated at new children's hospital
60,000 sq ft Stone Oak location estimated completion summer 2017
SAN ANTONIO – Christus Santa Rosa and the Children's Hospital of San Antonio broke ground on a new location Monday morning, which will offer top-notch medical care to children and adults in the Stone Oak area.
The new Children's Hospital of San Antonio Health Pavilion will be a three-story, 60,000-square-foot complex located at 1434 Sonterra Blvd providing office space for Baylor College of Medicine physicians in addition to providing medical care.
“On behalf of Christus Santa Rosa Health System and The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, I am pleased to announce the expansion of our network of care into North San Antonio,” said Ken D Haynes, president and CEO of Christus Santa Rosa Health System.
Construction begins thanks to a partnership between Christus Santa Rosa Health System, The Children's Hospital of San Antonio, real estate development company Trammel Crow Company, and investment group Seavest. Completion is scheduled for summer of 2017.
“This new development, The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Health Pavilion: Stone Oak, will offer the Stone Oak community access to The Children’s Hospital’s world-class Baylor College of Medicine physicians and care, as well as adult primary care - close to home," The Children's Hospital of San Antonio President Elias Neujahr said.
The first floor of the building will be a dedicated pediatric emergency center, and will include a KidSTOP location.
KidSTOP, established by the Children's Hospital of San Antonio in 2009, is a service specifically designed to treat children, by administering certain tests and out-patient treatment in a stress-free environment without requiring them to go to a hospital.
“This new facility at Stone Oak will help to extend the reach of the amazing pediatric subspecialty care that has been established in downtown San Antonio over the past three years by The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio,” said Chair of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine and Physician-In-Chief at Texas Children’s Hospital Dr. Mark Kline, M.D.
