Baylor Scott & White Health building new clinic on Hwy. 29 in west Georgetown

Baylor Scott & White Health said Monday a new primary care clinic will open in summer 2018 at 7451 W. Hwy. 29, Georgetown.

The clinic, under construction near the intersection of Hwy. 29 and Ronald Reagan Boulevard, will serve patients in west Georgetown, Leander and Liberty Hill, according to Baylor Scott & White. The facility will include 13 exam rooms as well as a treatment room and will offer family medicine, diagnostic X-ray and on-site laboratory services.

Jay Fox, the Austin and Round Rock region president for Baylor Scott & White, said in a news release that the Dallas-based health provider continues to see growth in Williamson County.

Baylor Scott & White Health, which was formed in 2013 from a merger between Baylor Health Care System and Scott & White Health, has expanded its hospitals and facilities across the Austin region in recent years.

Along with several clinics that have opened in the region in the past year, Baylor Scott & White is preparing to open a new hospital in Pflugerville in mid-2018. The 97,474-square-foot facility will be located at 2600 E. Pflugerville Parkway, near SH 130 and adjacent to the Falcon Pointe subdivision.

A 50-bed Baylor Scott & White hospital is also planned at 5251 W. Hwy. 290, Austin, in the Oak Hill neighborhood. A site plan for that development is under review by the city of Austin.

The new clinic on Hwy. 29 will be Baylor Scott & White’s third clinic operating in Georgetown. Other clinics are located at 1507 Rivery Blvd., Georgetown, and at 4945 Williams Drive, Georgetown.
