Longview, TX — Good Shepherd Medical Center is looking northward again for its latest major expansion project — a $20 million, 74,000-square-foot facility to be built next to the GSMC Institute for Healthy Living.
Construction is expected to start by late summer or early fall on the facility that will house a new emergency center, comprehensive outpatient diagnostic testing center and physician medical offices. It will be built on a 13-acre tract the medical center acquired about a year ago directly west of the institute on Hawkins Parkway.
“With the growth of Longview to the north, we wanted to be able to offer patients convenient access to outpatient testing services as well as urgent and emergency care,” said Ed Banos, Good Shepherd president and CEO. “And with our growing ER volumes, this new center will be able to meet the community’s growing need for emergency and urgent care services.”
