The city is reviewing a permit application for Houston-based Nutex Health to build and open an ER and micro-hospital facility at northeast Beach and Kernan Boulevards at a project cost of almost $21 million.

Hoar Construction LLC of Birmingham, Alabama, is the contractor for the eight-bed, 28,303-square-foot hospital on 7.85 acres at 12645 Beach Blvd. Gresham Smith of Tampa is the architect.

Plans show eight emergency department exam rooms, eight inpatient beds and an imaging department with MRI, CT scan and X-ray services.

The owner’s name is listed as BBKR Development Partners LLC, based in Atlanta. BBKR bought the 8.42-acre site in August 2022 from Tamaya Loan Acquisition LLC for $4.85 million.

Houston-based Nutex Health Inc. announced in June 2022 that it planned to build and open the facility.

The permit calls it a specialty hospital, which Nutex Health says offers individualized medical care around the clock.

The health care company says that in addition to ER services, specialty hospitals can observe patients overnight or admit them for an extended stay. It says its facilities offer medical treatment, including drug and alcohol detox services and behavioral services.
