Baylor Scott & White Health leaders and city officials in Pflugerville broke ground to celebrate the start of construction on a new medical center. The Pflugerville medical center was planned in order to accommodate the growing need for medical services in the Central Texas city given its recent population growth.
Baylor Health’s new medical center will focus on activities and programs designed to highlight healthy living habits, in addition to offering quality medical care.
Jay Fox, president of Baylor Health’s Austin and Round Rock region, says that after more than a decade, Baylor is “renewing its commitment” and expanding its healthcare services to Plugerville.
“We are always looking for ways to advance our mission of creating a healthier population in Texas by serving more people and communities,” Fox said in a statement. “We take a team approach to caring for every patient so they get the highest quality care possible.”
According to Baylor Health, the new medical center is specifically designed to “grow as the population of Pflugerville continues to increase.” The medical center will include a hospital and an integrated multi-specialty medical clinic.
The new facility has been designed with a healthy living focus in mind, and plans to serve as a venue for various programs and initiatives, including “health and wellness seminars, nutrition classes, and cooking demonstrations.”
The Pflugerville medical center is expected to open in 2018.
