Covenant to Build New Facility

A new project will soon bring healthcare closer to residents of Southwest Lubbock and Wolfforth. Friday, Covenant Health Systems unveiled the model for a new health care facility to be built at the Southwest corner of 98th and Slide.

The 90,000 square foot facility will feature an ambulatory surgical center, an imaging center, and physicians offices. Bill Bopp is the Vice President for Business Development at Covenant. He says this type of partnership is a win-win situation. "When hospitals and physicians partner together, patient satisfaction and and clinical outcomes are increased and cost is more efficient for the consumer."

The land was purchased by First Bank and Trust, and was originally slated to be the site of a new banking center. Now, they will enter into a joint venture with Covenant by building a banking center to compliment the new medical center.
