LUBBOCK - Covenant Health System officials announced their plan for a $450 million renovation project.
Covenant’s capital improvement project called “Keeping the Covenant” includes:
• $28 million expansion and renovation to the Joe Arrington Cancer Center
• new five-story Women’s Center
• new clinics including a 24,000-sf urgent care center at Erksine St. and Frankford Ave.
• renovations to the children’s hospital
• $40 million Plainview Covenant Hospital
The renovation and expansion project is planned to be completed in five to seven years.
Along with the Joe Arrington Cancer Center 16,000-sf expansion, the facility will be renovated with the latest radiation therapy equipment and include remodeled patient care rooms. New medical oncology and specialty clinics will also be included.
Additional improvements include renovation to the existing heart center and radiology units, a new central plant and the demolition of the west tower and construction of a new tower to house women’s services and a new main hospital entrance.
The new women’s services floors will include labor and delivery and postpartum floors, relocated from Covenant Children’s and a neonatal intensive care unit.
Two new outpatient clinics will be constructed in the city, including one in Northwest Lubbock that is set to break ground in April. The northwest clinic will provide space for six family practice physicians and an attached urgent care area.
Renovations to Covenant Children’s will be the final phase of Keeping the Covenant. Two floors at Covenant Children’s will be renovated for new administrative and support services. Improved patient rooms and facilities will also be included.
