The first announced the opening of this new location in 2022, and anyone that drives around South Lubbock has definitely noticed the beautiful building they have been constructing. With floor-to-ceiling windows, unique curving architecture, and more, it is a sight to behold.

Not only is it a gorgeous building, but it has opened up the opportunity for over 200 jobs. Knowing UMC’s ‘Service is Our Passion’ culture, I think this is a great opportunity not only for employment, but healthcare in Lubbock.

The hospital features a level-3 emergency center, a state-of-the-art radiology department, a drive-thru pharmacy, and a beautiful fitness center.

Some of the other services offered at the hospital include:

  • Cancer Center Infusion
  • Cardiac Rehab
  • Inpatient Beds
  • Laboratory
  • Occupational & Physical Therapy
  • Operating Rooms & Cardiac Cath

  • Cardiology
  • Endocrinology
  • Family Medicine
  • General Surgery
  • Internal Medicine

I know several people that work for UMC, and they have all taken time out of their regular schedules to assist in getting this facility ready for the public. From setting up a variety of departments to hanging local art and photography to decorate the halls, it really took a village to get this hospital ready for opening day, and it is amazing.
