Lakeway Regional Medical Center Opens
published on April 23, 2012
Lakeway Regional Medical Center finally has opened. Doors to the 274,500 square foot building officially opened to the public on April 16th, and a few lucky folks took a peak at the medical marvel at a recent open house that featured short tours, kids’ activities, and staff Q&A’s.
Services at the hospital are both cutting edge and varied, and for Lakeway residents, it means they now have access to services they otherwise would have to drive more than 20 miles to receive. This new proximity makes Lake Travis living even more appealing for those involved in an Austin home search.
Just a few of the features of LRMC:
– 106 beds
– a medical staff of over 100 physicians
– Emergency and General Medicine departments and Primary Care physicians
– Neonatal, Labor and Delivery, and Obstetrics/Gynecology services
– Dentistry, Allergists, and Pain Management services
– A Cancer center and Cardiac Unit
In addition to the multitude of medical services offered, the center is expected to generate hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars for the Lakeway area. It employs approximately 250 people at opening and could employ 500 people by the end of the first year and 1,000 people after the third year.
Their mission is “the delivery of compassionate and exceptional quality healthcare that improves the quality of life for our patients, our physicians, our healthcare team and the communities we serve.” They will fulfill their mission through the nearly 100,000 people in the hospital’s service area west of Austin in the hill country.
With the addition of the new center, Lakeway becomes an even more desirable area for those looking to purchase a home there. Anyone looking for assistance in making such a big decision can depend on the Austin real estate agents at Regent Property Group for expert guidance in their search.
