Peace of mind—we all deserve it. Auburn has officially received a new dose of the feeling, thanks to a project from Auburn University and East Alabama Medical Center (EAMC): a new medical facility. Located at the Auburn Research Park, the Auburn Medical Pavilion is now open. See if you can spot it off of Shug Jordan Parkway near the intersection of South College Street.
More on the opening
On June 23, our town’s safety received an upgrade with the official opening of the new Auburn Medical Pavilion. EAMC and Auburn University held a ribbon cutting ceremony on-site. Auburn mayor Ron Anders also stood in attendance.
About the Pavilion
The Auburn Medical Pavilion is now open—and it spans 84,000-square-feet of cutting-edge space. It’s a level-3 trauma center with an important mission in mind.
The goal? To provide walk-in help for those who need treatment.
As for the pavilion itself, it features:
- 12 exam rooms;
- A laboratory;
- Diagnostic radiology services;
- A pharmacy;
- A helicopter landing pad;
- And more.
The East Alabama Ambulatory Surgery Center has nearly reached completion. Its opening date stands somewhere towards the end of the summer. Additionally, the development of the Breast Health Center is still ongoing. Still, according to plans, that area will reach completion in fall 2021.
Impact on the local economy
With a $37 million price tag, the Auburn Medical Pavilion has already given our local economy a boost, just by being built. Not to mention, it will also add 100 or so jobs. As of its opening day, the center had hired 95 percent of its staff.
As an added bonus, the project also impacted local infrastructure. It allocated $2 million to better the road. Just another reason why our town calls this development a win for everyone!
The new Auburn Medical Pavilion—and its staff—aim to keep us safe. They stay open seven days a week, 24 hours a day. They’ll take care of you at 900 Camp Auburn Road in the Auburn Research Park.
Remember, if you or someone with you is in an emergency, call 911!
We hope you never need it! But if you do, the Auburn Medical Pavilion is now open.
