Opening February 2014
Scott & White Healthcare is building a five-story specialty pediatric clinic adjacent to McLane Children’s Hospital Scott & White in Temple. The 112,000 square-foot, $32 million facility will coordinate both outpatient and inpatient pediatric specialty services and physicians in one convenient location. This facility will greatly expand the opportunities for comprehensive, personalized and high-quality care for Central Texas children.
During construction, some entrances and exits will be blocked. Get a map of the campus, here.
The specialty clinic will initially include the following pediatric services:
- General pediatrics
- Adolescent Medicine
- Urgent Care and After-Hours clinic
- Drive-Thru Pharmacy
- Resident Continuity Clinic
- Refreshment kiosk
- Business office
- Social work
- Medical Records
- Research Department
Pediatric Neurosciences Center with:
The specialty clinic building will house more than 80 highly specialized physicians, residents and fellows, and approximately 200 support staff. The building will have a total of 135 exam rooms, 13 treatment rooms and eight specialty rooms. A drive-through pharmacy, diagnostic imaging, and laboratory services will also be part of the new building.
The Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center is a key feature of the new building. Made possible by a special donation, the new center will be 8,000 square feet, more than doubling the size of the existing pediatric cancer center. There will be two treatment rooms and nine infusion bays, all designed with children in mind, creating a comfortable and inviting environment for all.
A Pediatric Neurosciences Center is another example of the enhanced services the new clinic will bring. The Neurosciences Center will contain child psychiatry, neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychology, and child development.
"A pediatric neurosciences center is a very rare offering," said Dr. Beeram. "It will allow us to provide care for children who have psychological, social, and neurological issues. Parents of these children know how hard it is to find the right kind of care in a one-stop, convenient location."
The building will also include specialty clinics that treat cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy, and cleft palate. McLane Children’s provides advanced capabilities like these to better serve the children of Central Texas.
