The facility will offer primary care and general surgery as well as specialty services such as cardiology, orthopedics, ophthalmology and pain management.
The project also includes a physician clinic that is expected to be completed next spring; the clinic will anchor the Marble Falls medical campus and offer outpatient services while the hospital is being built.
Construction of the 60,000-square foot clinic began in November. The new date for the 200,000-square foot hospital-bed tower moves up the timeline by almost two years. A surgical and diagnostic clinic will also follow one to three years after the physician clinic is completed.
Plans to build the medical center grew out of a 2007 partnership between Scott & White, the city of Marble Falls and Llano (Texas) Memorial Health System. Scott & White took over Llano Memorial in 2008.
