The first of three phases of Ascension Seton’s multispecialty and outpatient facility in Georgetown is set to open in June, said Raymond Anderson, chief strategy officer for Ascension Texas.

The 60,000-square-foot building, which is under construction near the intersection of CR 265 and Wolf Ranch Parkway, will include an ambulatory surgery center, a medical office building and an outpatient imaging center.

Specialties coming to Phase 1 include orthopedics, heart and vascular, dermatology, gastroenterology, and general surgery, Anderson said.

Situated on about 12 acres, the future campus marks an expansion of Ascension’s services in Georgetown. Anderson said prior to this facility, Ascension only had a couple of primary care clinics in the area.

Called Ascension Seton Health Center Georgetown, the new facility will be customized to better meet the needs of both patients and providers, he said. It will also allow the health care provider to expand as the community grows and its needs change.

What was founded as more of a retirement-style community—which requires more orthopedic and cardiovascular care—is seeing young families that require women’s services and pediatric care move in, Anderson said.

Phases 2 and 3 of the campus, planned as two additional 60,000-square-foot medical office buildings, will be able to accommodate these services and bring other specialities to the area, he said. The medical group has yet to establish a timeline for these future phases.

Ascension’s facility will be part of the 164-acre master-planned, mixed-use community called Wolf Lakes Village, which is designed to be a European-style village.

“We see Georgetown really as the next frontier for growth as you move from Travis County to Williamson [County],” Anderson said.

Making a medical space

Ascension Seton purchased about 12 acres of land at the future Wolf Lakes Village mixed-use development. The plan is to build on the site in three phases. Phase 1, slated to open in June, will include:
  • a 20,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center;
  • a 30,000-square-foot medical office building with orthopedics, dermatology, heart and vascular, and gastroenterology specialities; and
  • a 10,000-square-foot imaging center with CT scan, MRI and X-ray capabilities.
