A new hospital is coming to Lubbock...with a familiar name.
Covenant officials broke ground Wednesday on what will be a 4 story facility with 56 beds for long term care...including a pharmacy and dialysis bay on the first floor. The upper floors will be reserved for patients who need hospital care for at least 28 days.
"Their illness requires them a very long recover period and so we built a special hospital with our partners to take care of those specific needs," said Steve Hunter, Covenant CEO.
Over 30 physicians are partnering in this project. The Covenant Long Term Acute Care Hospital will be located at 20th Street and Memphis.
