Topping Out Texas Health and Human Services's New San Antonio State Hospital

The San Antonio State Hospital project team recently topped out the new San Antonio State Hospital. To celebrate the milestone, they hosted a socially-distanced barbecue lunch for the 300+ craft workers involved with the project. The project is a joint effort between the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. It will provide long-term and short-term residential and crisis treatment for patients with behavioral health issues. The 500,000 SF facility will contain support spaces for patient learning and therapy, administrative and clinical support spaces, a full kitchen, a half-court gymnasium, a chapel, a pharmacy, multiple courtyards, and surface parking. The project is anticipated to reach substantial completion in May 2023. HKS, Inc. is the architect.
