​SAN ANTONIO - A key parcel of real estate in the South Texas Medical Center, previously eyed by the San Antonio Medical Foundation and at least one out-of-state developer, has been scooped off the market.

Gastroenterology Associates of San Antonio has closed on the land at the corner of Hamilton Wolfe Rd. and Floyd Curl Dr., where it plans to construct a new surgical center.

The practice expects to break ground in May on the new facility, which will span more than 20,000 sf and house six surgical suites.

“We hope to have the building open by July or August 2017,” said Gastroenterology Consultants of San Antonio CEO April Donovan.

The new structure will replace the practice’s current medical center facility at Wurzbach Rd. and Ewing Halsell Dr., which has half as many surgical suites.

The new center will also give the practice needed space to add more clinical physicians. And it could be part of a more comprehensive medical campus.

Gastroenterology Consultants, which currently has three clinical facilities, is also considering developing a medical office building next to the surgical center.

“It could be multiple stories,” Donovan said, noting that each floor would likely contain roughly 10,000 sf.

The size of the medical office building would be limited somewhat by the availability of parking on the site.
