MCALLEN, Texas—Hammes, a recognized leader in healthcare development, broke ground on the new Jackson Medical Plaza on North Jackson Road in McAllen on April 7.

Hammes is serving as the developer for the new 43,000-square-foot facility and will retain ownership upon its completion in early 2023.

Jackson Medical Plaza will serve as a new location for Texas Digestive Specialists and The Advanced Weight Loss Center at TDS as they expand their services and locations in the Rio Grande Valley. The new medical plaza will also house the McAllen Endoscopy Center, which is a joint venture between physicians and HCA Healthcare. This specialized state-of-the-art surgical facility will focus on gastroenterological and colorectal care with five procedure rooms and one operating room equipped with the latest technology. When fully ramped up, it is anticipated that the McAllen Endoscopy Center will care for thousands of patients per year and create dozens of new jobs.

Nolan Perez, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Texas Digestive Specialists, commented “We are thrilled to be expanding our services and locations in the Rio Grande Valley with the addition of this new location. We pride ourselves on comfortable, quality facilities that are reflective of the care our patients have come to expect from Texas Digestive Specialists.”

“We are proud to bring this new facility to life for Texas Digestive Specialists, the McAllen Endoscopy Center, and the McAllen community,” said Justin Shea, Principal of Hammes Partners. “We offer a proven track record as the nation’s top healthcare developer, specializing in medical office buildings, ambulatory surgery centers, and other healthcare facilities.”

Boulder Associates is serving as the architect on the project, with Vaughn Construction serving as the contractor.
