Construction Progress

June 2022

The multispecialty and research hospital construction project is fueling our Bexar County economy and is creating job opportunities. We are currently averaging close to 160 workers onsite daily. At the peak of construction, we expect between 500 & 600 workers each day.

May 2022

YTD, our construction team has installed 25,569 yards of concrete which is the equivalent of 2,570 concrete trucks.

April 2022

UT Health San Antonio celebrates a one-year anniversary since breaking ground on the 12-acre tract that will be home to the 144-bed Multispecialty and Research Hospital.  UT Health broke ground on March 30, 2021.

February – March 2022

Advanced construction techniques are incorporated into the build of this state-of-the-art facility. The concrete that gets placed into the Transfer Beams, where the tower starts, has to be cooled with liquid nitrogen due to the amount of concrete and size of each Transfer Beam.  Each Beam is 8’ tall 7’ wide, and 100’ long and takes 200 yards of cooled down concrete or 20 concrete truck worth.

January 2022

UT Health San Antonio’s Multispecialty & Research Hospital is on track – the pillars on the 1st floor are completed and framing and ceiling work on the 2nd floor is underway.

December 2021

Exciting news for the development of our multi-specialty hospital. The first floor of our hospital has been poured and pillars are up and visible on the 1st floor podium. Construction cranes have been placed on either side of the future tower.

November 2021

In November, the construction team erected the tower crane; and, bridge piers were poured on the hospital side. The crews are moving along steadily keeping us on track for a 2024 completion date.

October 2021

Vaughn Construction, a leading builder of health care, research, and higher education facilities in Texas, uses sequencing and phasing, paired with collaborative discussion with our contractors to keep our project site safe and on schedule.

September 2021

Construction is scheduled for completion in 2024, and the 144-bed hospital will add 100 medical residents and fellows and bring 800 high-quality jobs to the city.

August 2021

Five months since ground was broken on our new multi-specialty hospital and our construction team is hard at work drilling, excavating, grading–ensuring a strong foundation is laid for this state-of-the-art hospital scheduled to open in 2024.

July 2021

Our building partners are currently drilling for the piers that the new hospital, garage and bridge will sit upon.  When complete, we will have used in approximately 5000 cubic yards of concrete just on piers.  The piers range in depth from 45’ deep up to 90’ deep and range in size from 18” round to 70” round.

June 2021

The land is continuing to be prepared for construction. This patient-centered hospital will deliver a singular healing advantage for the people of South Texas, ushering in a game-changing, fundamental shift to proactive, personalized medicine.
