Construction crews are busy off the southeast corner of 1604 and Kyle Seale Parkway where UT Health San Antonio’s newest outpatient and surgery center continues to take shape.
The outer shell of the five-story building is in place and UT Health at Kyle Seale Parkway is another step closer to providing expert primary, specialty and outpatient surgical care to our northwest side community.
Leaders of UT Health Physicians, the clinical practice of UT Health San Antonio, are confident the 108,000-square-foot medical facility, with a current projected total cost of $70 million, is on track to open next spring. The project represents a clinical expansion for UT Health San Antonio and is part of the university’s overall plan to meet the needs of continued community growth.

“The North and the Northwest quadrant of Bexar County is growing more rapidly than any other segment,” said Robert Leverence, MD, vice dean for clinical affairs for UT Health San Antonio and executive director of UT Health Physicians. “To meet that specific demand, we are putting a full-service medical building in the middle of that growth. It will be about as full-service as you can get, outside of a hospital setting.”
UT Health at Kyle Seale Parkway will include primary care, gastroenterology, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, otolaryngology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and physical therapy, as well as pathology and radiology — with the latest diagnostic laboratory testing and convenient imaging services including MRI, CT scan and ultrasound.
The center will include an ambulatory surgery center with four operating rooms. And it will have approximately 30,000 square feet of shelled space for future expansion.
UT Health San Antonio will own and operate the center. The construction contractor is Bartlett Cocke General Contractors, with architectural services being provided by Alamo Architects.
The project will have an estimated total economic impact of $42.4 million annually once operations begin and will support 140 jobs.
