Baptist Health System announces new medical campus in Westover Hills

Jun 17, 2021

New campus expected in 2023 will help meet needs of growing community

Matt stone being interviewed by KENS 5(San Antonio, TX) – Baptist Health System has announced plans to build a new medical campus in Westover Hills on 72 acres of land located at Wiseman and Highway 1604. The multi-phased project will begin later this year and will include medical office buildings, an ambulatory surgical center, and an acute care hospital, with the potential for additional medical and retail entities in future development phases. 

“Growth in the Westover Hills area has exceeded the supply of medical care available to people who live and work there. This campus represents our ongoing commitment to expanding high-quality healthcare access to greater San Antonio,” said Matt Stone, Baptist Health System Group CEO. “We see this as a generational development and one that can serve as a healthcare anchor for the Westover community and surrounding areas.” 

“The decision to secure additional land in the Westover area was made after a detailed assessment of how the community has developed over the past decade,” said Brady Phillips, Baptist Health System chief strategy officer. “The new location will afford us the space to invest in critical services including cardiovascular, maternity, and surgical care at a scale that is commensurate with the needs of the area.” 

The first phase of development will be a Medical Office Building, which will include ambulatory facilities for elective care, physician offices, and other ancillary medical service providers. Campus development is expected to begin later this year, with the intention to bring the first facilities online in advance of the hospital. Plans for a large scale, full-service acute care hospital is expected to follow with a projected opening date in late 2023.  

“We see this as a foundational expansion of our network and a critical investment in the community we serve,” Matt Stone said. “Building upon this investment in our network at this location as well as others is a key priority for Baptist as our greater region continues to grow.”

Currently, one of eight Baptist Neighborhood Hospitals serves the Westover Hills area. Located on Town Center Drive just off of Highway 151, the hospital offers emergency services as well as inpatient care for patients who may require an overnight stay for observation or ongoing critical care.
