Sierra Providence East Medical Center (SPEMC) opened in May 2008 and is part of the Sierra Providence Health Network. The 110-bed acute hospital offers a range of specialties, from cardiac care and orthopedics, to Level III Neonatal Intensive Care, and emergency room needs. SPEMC has expanded its services to include Electrophysiology, a free standing outpatient Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, an outpatient Infusion Center, and a Maternal Fetal Medicine High Risk Clinic, Breast and Women’s Health Center and will introduce minimally invasive robotic surgery options with the da Vinci in the late summer.
The hospital is currently undergoing a $67 million patient tower expansion to be completed at the end of 2014. The primary focus of the expansion will be a new four-story tower with over 145,000 square feet in addition to a new emergency department that will increase the capacity from 21 beds to 31 beds. The Joint Commission recertified SPEMC as an accredited Primary Stroke Center in 2013 and Sierra Providence East was also recently designated as a Level IV Trauma Facility by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
