Our PATH Forward: Transformation Project Begins at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi-Shoreline (Corpus Christi, Texas) – Kicking off the New Year, CHRISTUS Spohn Health System is excited to have begun its transformation project at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi-Shoreline. The hospital’s transformation includes the creation of approximately 420,000 square feet of new space and the removal of 320,000 square feet of aging buildings. Called Our PATH Forward, or People and Actions Transforming Health Care, the first phase of the Shoreline project includes the demolition of the hospital’s parking garage at the corner of Elizabeth and 2nd streets. The demolition of the parking garage will take place over several weeks in January and early February to make way for an enhanced inpatient tower and expanded emergency department. Surface parking for our visitors and Associates will be available across the street at Elizabeth and Santa Fe streets, with valet attendants in place to shuttle visitors.

This project is part of a major investment by CHRISTUS Health and the generosity of the South Texas community to invest $325 million dollars over the next three-to-five years to upgrade infrastructure and transform health care services in the Coastal Bend. Last month, CHRISTUS Spohn also broke ground on the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Family Health Center. This 40,000 square foot facility will serve as a medical home to the surrounding area, where patients can access a range of services under one roof including physician appointments, lab work, imaging, and even a drive-through pharmacy. The Family Health Center is scheduled to open in early fall 2016. For more information about our Transformation Project, visit http://www.OurPathForward.org
