New opening date set for years-delayed Fort Bliss Army hospital in East El Paso

The years-delayed, $1.4 billion William Beaumont Army Medical Center at Fort Bliss is scheduled to open July 11, Beaumont officials announced Thursday.

The announcement came within hours after the El Paso Times published a subscriber-exclusive story about a consultant’s report that found 521 “life safety” deficiencies in the hospital portion of the mammoth complex in East El Paso.

That report was delivered to Beaumont officials Feb. 26, just a month before the hospital was to open. The El Paso Times obtained the report through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Thursday’s announcement acknowledged that the hospital’s previous opening date of March 28 was canceled due to “some life safety concerns identified during training by hospital personnel, and in surveys by external agencies.”

Upgrades needed to comply with life safety standards are nearing completion, which will allow the July 11 opening, Beaumont officials said in the announcement.

Construction of the mammoth Fort Bliss medical complex has been plagued by years of construction problems and massive cost overruns. It’s located on 270 acres of Fort Bliss land at Spur 601 and Loop 375.

The original, targeted opening date was April 2017.
