SAN ANGELO - Shannon Medical Center and Shannon Clinic have announced six expansion projects totaling $45 million to update facilities and provide additional space.
The largest of the projects is a new $23.8 million, 80,000-sf multi-story medical office building that will be located downtown near Shannon Medical Center on Harris St. Completion is expected in early 2017.
The first floor of the new building will include ancillary services, such as lab and radiology, as well as Shannon’s downtown urgent care location.
The Shannon Ambulatory Surgery Center will add 3,800 sf for patient procedure rooms and preparation and recovery space. The Shannon Southwest Clinic on Sunset will add 1,800 sf of office space for gastroenterology specialists. Both projects are expected to be complete in August 2015, and will cost a combined $3.5 million.
An additional expansion will take place at the Shannon St. John’s Campus on Pulliam with the relocation of the hospital’s Rehab Care Unit.
Construction has already begun on the third floor of the St. John’s facility, and will allow the Rehab Unit to utilize 13,000 sf as it continues to grow. The move will also create 14 additional acute care beds within the main hospital to serve the growing number of patients there.
Another project slated to open in January 2015 is the new 6,500-sf Shannon Urgent Care West location.
The new urgent care location, Shannon’s fourth, will be located at the corner of Sherwood Way and Sunset Dr. at the former Big 5 Sporting Goods building. The space will include nine exam rooms and onsite x-ray and laboratory services.
Shannon Medical Center and Shannon Clinic plan to spend an additional $14 million upgrading all patient rooms over the next two years, the lobbies and waiting areas, and all three floors of the main clinic on Beauregard.
