Construction will begin later this year on a 22,000 square foot outpatient clinic in central El Paso.
The facility will be owned and operated by the University Medical Center of El Paso and represents the latest project in an expanding metro footprint for the hospital.
In 2017, UMC opened a 42,000 square foot clinic on the east side of El Paso at 5121 Joe Battle Boulevard, as well as a 45,000 square foot clinic on the west side at 6600 N. Desert Boulevard.
The latest clinic is expected to cost $22 million to build and will go up at 4800 Gateway East Boulevard near Interstate 10.
That 3.6-acre site was purchased by UMC for $5.5 million last year and will require the demolition of the four-story Vagabond Inn Motel.
Construction of the new clinic is being funded through certificates of obligation earlier approved by the El Paso County Commission.
