Valley Baptist Health System Breaks Ground on Weslaco Micro-Hospital

Jan 7, 2019

Valley Baptist Health System breaks ground on micro-hospital in Weslaco, in its continued efforts to expand services and deliver high-quality care to the Rio Grande Valley.

The celebration commemorated the construction on the new facility located at West Expressway 83, between Westgate Drive and Border Avenue.  The new micro-hospital, set to open in fall 2019, is the first-of-its-kind in the Rio Grande Valley and Valley Baptist’s first healthcare access point available in Hidalgo County.

“We are excited to continue to expand healthcare access for our community and provide the care they need close to home,” said Manny Vela, Chief Executive Officer for Valley Baptist Health System.  “Our community is growing at an exponential rate and it’s important we are keeping up with that growth to ensure our patients have the resources needed.”

The facility will total 28,780 square feet and include an emergency department, inpatient unit, laboratory, pharmacy and imaging and respiratory services.  With a full-service emergency department, the micro-hospital will house 12-beds and 2 trauma beds, as well as 8 inpatient beds. 

“Micro-hospitals can provide patients with more services than a freestanding emergency room, as well as offer the convenience of a higher level of care without having to go to an acute care hospital,” said Vela.

The micro-hospital will serve as an additional access point for the continuum of care that Valley Baptist Health System currently offers.
