ECTOR COUNTY - The Medical Center Health System is planning two family health clinics, one located in West Odessa and one in northeast Odessa. Officials said would cover a growing need for both pediatric care throughout the county and broader care in West Odessa.

Medical Center Hospital already purchased a four-acre plot on the northwest corner of FM 1936 and West University Blvd. for the West Odessa clinic.

The hospital also recently bought the 1.5-acre plot currently occupied by the former Red Sun China Buffet at 3001 John Ben Shepperd Parkway. The vacant restaurant will be demolished to make way for the clinic.

"Right now, we’re looking at a pretty large clinic — 20,000 square feet, a lot of different specialties — similar to the Family Health Clinic (on Clements Street in Odessa’s south side) we already have,” said John O’Hearn, the Executive Director of Planning and Development at Medical Center Hospital.

O’Hearn said the rough schedules call for groundbreaking by this summer and completion by October 2014 for both clinics. The price tag has been estimated at $4 million for the West Odessa clinic and $3 million for the 15,000-sf JBS Parkway Primary Care Clinic.
