AUSTIN — St. David’s HealthCare, which provides care for more Central Texans than any other healthcare system, announced today the investment of $953 million in the region’s healthcare infrastructure.
“St. David’s HealthCare is committed to meeting the needs of our rapidly growing community,” David Huffstutler, president and chief executive officer of St. David’s HealthCare, said. “While the COVID-19 pandemic certainly compounded the challenges our region is facing, there was already a need for more physical capacity in our existing hospitals to care for patients, as well as additional services in our community, including behavioral health services. And, as the population growth in Central Texas continues to expand into outlying areas, this has created the need for us to establish additional sites of care in those areas.
“These needs will only increase in the future with the ongoing, rapid growth of Central Texas,” said Huffstutler. “As a result, we are initiating plans to build two new hospitals, embarking on the construction of a new behavioral health hospital, as well as plans for multiple expansion and renovation projects to ensure we can continue our mission to provide exceptional care to every patient every day.”
