​​​​​​​​​AUSTIN – ​The Austin area’s ever-growing population has spurred a construction race during the past year among the area’s three biggest hospital providers—Baylor Scott & White Health, Seton Healthcare Family and St. David’s HealthCare—resulting in new health care facilities and expansions.

​​​​St. David’s Surgical Hospital, a 146,381-sf surgical center at 1201 W. Louis Henna Blvd., was one of two hospitals that opened in the Austin area in the past 12 months.

This also includes the $310 million Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, which opened May 21, 2017 and will serve as a teaching hospital for The University of Texas Dell Medical School.

In Leander, an 11,200-sf freestanding emergency department with radiological services and a medical lab is slated to open this fall.

Baylor Scott & White broke ground in February 2017 on a new Pflugerville hospital, which will be the city’s first. 

The 97,474-sf facility is expected to open in mid-2018.

Baylor Scott & White Health is also planning a new hospital in Southwest Austin. 

The 50-bed facility is slated for a two-phase build-out on an 11-acre parcel of land currently home to the Oak Hill Golf Range. 

It could open by early 2019.
