CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System is expanding its CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital — Westover Hills campus in the fast-growing community of San Antonio.
Construction is nearly complete on a larger emergency department. The project consists of 16 additional private treatment rooms, seven fast-track bays to treat less emergent cases, as well as CT, X-ray, and lab services within the department.
Construction also is underway on a new four-story tower that will sit adjacent to the hospital. CHRISTUS expects the tower to be completed in 2025.
The 164,000-square-foot tower will accommodate 30 private postpartum rooms, a newborn nursery, a obstetrics emergency room unit equipped with private rooms, 44 new adult intensive care beds, 20 neonatal intensive care beds and an expanded pharmacy.
The Greg and Bekki Kowalski family, known in San Antonio for their culinary and hospitality services, demonstrated their support for the maternal fetal care program expansion by making a $1 million pledge.
Plans are also in place for construction to start next year on a fourth medical plaza just across from the main entrance of the CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital — Westover Hills. This building will include an ambulatory surgical center to meet the increasing need for outpatient surgical services.
Additionally, CHRISTUS Children's will add specialty pediatric clinics to the hospital campus next year.
