San Antonio TX Homes for Healthcare Employees

New healthcare facilities could be of interest to many residents of San Antonio TX homes and potential healthcare employees.  Additionally, Forbes Magazine identified San Antonio TX real estate in its Top 10 best recession-proof cities to live in for retirement.  Moreover, according to a new study compiled by Portfolio.com, residents of San Antonio homes provide the second-best labor market in the United States.

These are good reasons why three new medical facilities are opening and expanding their real estate in the San Antonio cityscape.  The facilities include a Welcome Center and Center for Health Professions building complex by St. Philip’s College Center for Learning Resources, and the expansions of the University Health System and the University of the Incarnate Word satellite medical center.

The new 215,000-square-foot facility at St. Philip’s College received the Excellence in Construction award from the South Texas Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors.  The complex, which opened in August 2009, is part of Alamo College’s $450 million capital improvement program.  Alamo Colleges include Northwest Vista College, Palo Alto College, St. Philip’s College, San Antonio College, and Northeast Lakeview College.  Designers of the St. Philip’s College $67.5-million project included Saldana & Associates and Pfluger Architects Associates.

University Health System (UHS) plans to renovate an existing building in the Robert B. Green Hospital downtown.  This $76M project will include a five- or six-story building spanning a total of 200,000 to 250,000 square feet.  The new medical offices will include an outpatient clinic, an MRI facility, doctors’ offices, and pathology labs.  Beginning summer 2010, San Antonio-based Bartlett Cocke General Contractors will oversee the construction.

The medical developments by the University of the Incarnate Word are substantial.  Financial projections expect these projects to add $750M into the local economy over the next decade.  UIW is expanding its current 35,000-square-foot satellite medical center campus at Datapoint Drive in several directions.  By early 2010, it will add 55,000 square feet.  The School of Optometry will utilize about two-thirds of the space.  UIW also plans to take over 110,000 square feet of additional space when another tenant moves out in a few years.
