This is the second medical center slated for the Sunfield Municipal Utility District following Baylor Scott & White's announcement that it would be breaking ground on a full-service hospital in April.
Ascension is one of the nation's largest nonprofit and Catholic health care systems, and it owns Dell Children's Medical Center Of Central Texas, Seton Family of Hospitals and Providence Healthcare Network.
According to Ascension spokesperson Erin Rogers, the Ascension Seton Health outpatient center will be an approximately 20,000-square-foot facility that will include primary care, express care, telehealth and specialty care.
The center will have on-site lab testing, walk-in services, extended hours and medical specialists in pediatrics and dermatology with room to grow for more in the future.
Ascension currently has Seton Medical Center Hays in Kyle, Texas.
The ground breaking is scheduled for April 4, and the medical center is expected to open in spring 2019.
