LEAGUE CITY — Groundbreaking for a $90 million expansion of the University of Texas Medical Branch’s Victory Lakes facilities, which would allow the organization to attract more paying patients in the north county, could commence as early as February if a state agency approves.

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, which oversees all public postsecondary education in the state, is expected Jan. 24 to review the medical branch’s plans to add 142,000 square feet of clinical space that would allow for 39 patient beds and inpatient stays of up to 72 hours, among other additions. The development is valued at $82 million. In a related project, the medical branch will build an $8 million central plant to provide utilities to its 62-acre Victory Lakes campus.
