South Texas Health System Breaks Ground on New ER Facility in North Edinburg
Edinburg, Texas (May 23, 2017) – South Texas Health System held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday morning for its stand-alone emergency room to be constructed in north Edinburg.
The facility, known as STHS ER at Edinburg, will provide 24-hour emergency services year round. STHS ER at Edinburg will be staffed and equipped with the same diagnostic technology available in SHTH’s hospital-based emergency rooms.
Mayor Richard H. Garcia welcomed STHS to its newest location.
“I want to congratulate South Texas Health System for choosing this location,” Garcia said. “We are on the cusp of growth here in the City of Edinburg.”
The facility will serve approximately 60,000 people that live in the surrounding area and will also bring 25 well-paying jobs.
“We can’t overlook the importance of this facility,” Garcia said. “We are very happy, and we are very thankful that it exists here. The City of Edinburg is proud to partner with South Texas Health System and we look forward to doing that in the future.”
STHS ER at Edinburg is slated to be completed by December 2017 and will be located at 3505 N. I-69C.
