Construction across the institution continues to proceed at a rapid pace at the Galveston campus and also at the Victory Lakes campus
and some of the stand-alone clinics.
Major construction highlights include:
The New Jennie Sealy Hospital is progressing rapidly. Construction crews are installing the concrete deck and columns on floor 8 and ductwork is going in on the second floor now. This project is averaging 185 workers per day.
Expansion of the Victory Lakes Specialty Care Center, to include a short-term stay patient facility, is in progress; the final phase of site utilities and the concrete pour of the first elevated floor is planned this week. This project is requiring about 80 workers on site daily.
Concrete slabs of the first through fifth floors of the Clinical Services Wing (CSW) are now complete, with specialty trades such as plumbing and casting moving in to the site now. An average of 100 workers a day are constructing the CSW.
New clinics planned:
Alvin Family Clinic near Home Depot and Highway 6 will provide adult and pediatric services when it opens in fall 2014.
Texas City Combined Clinic off Emmett Lowry will open in June 2015 for Cardiology, Urology, Pediatrics, Ear, Nose and Throat and Physical/Occupational Therapy patients.
Planning is also in progress for an expanded site for Pediatrics on Galveston Island.
