Agreement with Seton Family of Hospitals to develop a multi-phase medical center complex within the city, including a Seton clinic that will offer primary care and after-hours urgent care services. Construction on the clinic will begin by the end of 2018.
Elgin is currently a medically underserved area of northern Bastrop County, where quality healthcare services are costly and not typically available in a community of its size. Through this partnership, however, the City and Seton will join together to provide much-needed medical services and facilities to the Elgin community in a manner that is financially viable and sustainable.
“This is a great project for the city and represents a true partnership with Seton to address Elgin’s health care needs while properly managing use of the public’s money,” said Elgin Mayor Chris Cannon. “We believe this is just the start of new commercial growth and development and Seton represents the anchor we have been looking for to lead the way.”
A primary feature of the partnership involves the City conveying land to Seton in exchange for a commitment to provide healthcare services. The City will convey ownership of approximately 35acres of currently undeveloped land south of and adjacent to US Highway 290 for this purpose. In exchange for the land, Seton will construct a multi-phased project that may include multiple buildings providing traditional medical services, with a total possible capital investment up to$30 million. Phase 1 of the Project will include the construction an approximately 5,000 square foot care site that will be designed to offer primary care and after-hours urgent care services.
“As a community ministry with more than 100 years of service to Central Texas, the Seton family has always considered it our responsibility to provide health care services to all the people of this region,” said Andy Davis, President of Seton Family of Hospitals. “As Central Texas continues to grow, we are grateful to work in conjunction with the City of Elgin to develop and provide high quality health care services through an innovative arrangement." Phase1 of the Project is anticipated to represent a $2.2 million capital investment by Seton. “This is a very exciting announcement of a project that will have a significant impact on the growth and development in Elgin,” said Tom Mattis, Elgin City Manager. “And its clearly a bonus to have a development partner with such high-standing in the community as Seton.”
