NexCore Group JV Completes Texas Medical Campus
Construction of the 55,000-square-foot project began in January 2022.
NexCore Group, in partnership with CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System, has opened Gisela Houseman Medical Campus in Orange, Texas. The 55,000-square-foot building will provide health-care services to a community that was left without a medical center since 2017, when Baptist Hospital Orange closed.
The joint venture broke ground on the project in January 2022. At that time, it was reported that the Orange Economic Development Corp. will provide the infrastructure, while the county and City of Orange will offer a reduction in property taxes, an agreement to cover a total of 10 years. The land for development was donated by The Houseman Cos. in 2019. SmithGroup and PhiloWilke acted as architects, while Arch-Con was the general contractor.
CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System is occupying 37,000 square feet at the two-story building, which includes an emergency hospital, physician office space and outpatient and diagnostic services.
Gisela Houseman Medical Campus will provide a variety of medical services, such as:
- Four extended-stay rooms
- Emergency care available 24/7 with two assessment and 10 exam rooms
- Medical office suites for primary and specialty care providers
- A Women’s Center that provides 3D mammography, breast ultrasound and bone density screening
- Diagnostic imaging that features CT, EKG, diagnostic and vascular ultrasound, digital radiography and MRI
Located at 6901 Medical Center Drive, near the southeast corner of Interstate 10E and State Highway 62, the campus is some 22 miles from Beaumont, Texas.
