KINGSLAND — After more than a year since a fire damaged the facility while under construction, Kingsland residents finally celebrated the opening of the new Seton Kingsland Healthcare Center.
More than 75 community leaders, residents and Seton Highland Lakes employees attended an open house and a ribbon cutting for the facility Dec. 12. The clinic is located at 525 RR 2900 between Ridgeview and Nob Hill streets in the heart of the Kingsland business community.
The 6,000-square-foot clinic has 12 exams room as well as a community room for health education and other public events. Dr. Vincent Goux serves patients and provides primary medical care at the new clinic.
Cardiology, imaging and lab services will be offered at the clinic starting in early 2014.
“The community has grown dramatically since we served our first patient through the Seton Kids Care-a-Van program at Packsaddle Elementary 10 years ago,” said Denise Watson, Seton Highland Lakes director of operations. “We are pleased to be able to meet the growing healthcare needs of area residents through the new clinic.”
In July 2012, the clinic was under construction when a fire destroyed the structure. Officials with Seton worked with fire investigators, who determined the fire was caused by arson. Suspects were arrested in the case.
“Residents have been patiently waiting for our new health care center to open,” Watson said. “While the fire was a serious setback, we appreciate the support of the community while we rebuilt our clinic.”
