Guadalupe medical center to nearly double in size. As San Antonio continues to expand in unprecedented fashion, the spillover is increasingly affecting some of its closest neighbors in all directions. To the north and west, that spillover is changing the landscapes in places like Boerne and Helotes, and to the east it is Seguin, which is experiencing historic growth.

In an effort to keep up with that growth, the latter area's largest health care facility, the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, is set to undergo what will be one of the most ambitious hospital expansions in the San Antonio area in years. Work has recently begun on the $100 million project, with a target completion date of 2010. That work will include an extensive rehabilitation and expansion of the hospital, which originally opened in 1965, nearly doubling the size of the campus to roughly 260,000 square feet of space - including 141,000 square feet of new space. Plans include the addition of a three-story inpatient hospital tower and a new multi-story outpatient facility. "The project will provide a first-rate facility for the seven-county region served by the medical center and allow the hospital to meet the area's anticipated future needs for health care services," says GRMC CEO Robert Haynes.
