North Lubbock development begins Tuesday with the groundbreaking for a new heart hospital. It will be located in the 4800 block of the N. Loop.
Heart Hospitals of Wichita, KS says the 100,000 square foot facility will provide millions of dollars a year into Lubbock's economy. But Lubbock's other hospitals, Covenant and UMC, have said the heart hospital is not necessary.
The new facility is expected to open at the end of this year.
