STAFF REPORT

Seton Medical Center Hays and a Pennsylvania-based health care company expect to start construction this summer on a 40-bed rehabilitation hospital in Kyle’s ever-growing medical district.

The $16 million Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital will specialize in programs for strokes, brain injuries, amputations and other major traumas, including treatment for wounded war veterans. A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for 10 a.m. Monday, July 15.

“Health care will change dramatically in the years ahead, with Seton working with patients so they recuperate in a lower-cost rehabilitation hospital or at home instead of in more-costly acute hospital beds,” Tom Gallagher, the head of Seton’s Ventures and Alliances operation, said in a written statement.

Seton’s partner in the project, Camp Hill, Penn.-based Post Acute Medical, operates hospitals and out-patient offices in Texas and Louisiana with Central Texas locations in Luling, New Braunfels and San Antonio.

The facility will be built at 5980 Kyle Parkway across the street from the Seton Hays campus. Construction is scheduled to begin in July and last about 11 months.

Financing by American National Bank of Texas was finalized May 3 with equity participation from Dallas-based MedProperties Holdings LLC and Houston-based Trivant Healthcare.

Construction of the two-floor, 54,000 square foot facility by Austin-based Hill & Wilkinson General Contractors is projected to be completed in Jun 2014. It was designed by GSR Andrade Architects Inc., which maintains offices in Dallas and San Antonio.
