Memorial Hermann TMC Campus Expansion


Recommended Posts

A friend forwarded this internal email sent to Memorial Hermann TMC employees from the CEO earlier this week.

 

 

Over the last year, we have had many discussions about the upcoming Master Plan to renovate and expand the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center Campus.

 

Today, I’m proud to announce that the Memorial Hermann System Board unanimously approved the project. 

The board’s approval of this $650 million construction venture sets the stage for us to not only upgrade our current infrastructure, but also to enhance our ability to provide the highest-quality and safest health care for our community for many decades to come.    

The focus of the project will be the construction of two new buildings on Campus.  One will be a new, state-of-the-art patient care building and the other will offer additional parking and infrastructure capabilities to support the new growth. The expansion will provide the Campus with:

•       An additional 160 beds;

•       25 operating rooms (19 replacement ORs and 6 new ORs);

•       16 additional emergency room bays;

•       750 new parking spaces; and a

•       333-seat café.

In addition, we recognize that our community will grow and so will its health care needs. To prepare for future growth, we are designing the building with a forward-looking perspective and adding six shelled floors and six shelled operating rooms with the potential of adding 264 beds. As our community continues to expand, this will allow for the continued growth of the service lines on our Campus. 

 

The approval of this project builds upon the tremendous growth at Memorial Hermann-TMC over the last year. In June 2013, the Board approved $50 million to address short-term capacity projects on our Campus, establishing a new observation unit, expanding the post-acute care unit and building out new inpatient beds, operating rooms and an expansion of imaging capabilities.

 

We are excited about our growth and future, but I want to assure our patients and the community that we will continue to meet their needs now without disruption as we prepare to meet their needs in the future.

As we work on the upcoming construction plan, please stay tuned for important news and information related to the project in our various publications and throughout the Campus. 

 

Your invaluable partnership is making a difference and I hope that you feel the same pride I do to be a part of this seminal moment in our hospital and System’s history. Thank you for the great work you are doing here!

Have a question. Where do I post random TMC photos? I see the phrase "Master Plan" so I thought I'd post this in here.. During our flight, my niece took my phone and said "Hey, that's the TMC.."

And its now open for customers. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2020/02/20/photos-houstons-largest-health-system-opens-17.html?ana=e_me_set1&j=90481551&t=Morning A&mkt_tok=ey

So is this  addition going up on the block just east  of  Herman Hospital on Cambridge between Ben Taub, facing Herman park or will this front the Fannin side?

 

It will be next to MH Childrens -- Cambridge side overlooking Hermann Park.

He said reduced reimbursements from government programs such as Medicare and Medcaid and outdated buildings and infrastructure are forcing the health system, Houston's largest, to take on the project, expected to begin this summer. The expansion is to be completed in 2018.

I like this.  In general I like building complexes that grow and morph over time using different architectural styles.  Another great example in Houston is IAH.  No one would ever plan out an airport like that from scratch, but it's cool that there are parts dating from the 1960s - 2000s that more or less work together.

I've heard that Memorial Hermann has plans to tear down the Robertson Pavilion. Robertson is one of the more older buildings in the Medical Center, probably built in the late 40's.

Wouldn't be surprised at all. It is dwarfed by the other Memorial Herman buildings surrounding it. They will need room to expand in the future and that is the best bet for redevelopment since the building is old.

More older?

 

Sorry, I just had to point that out.

Hinedesky do you ever record your route?  I'd be curious how many miles you're riding on one of these marathon photo missions - especially if today was cut short!

I have an app on my iPhone called "Cyclemeter" that tracks my route and miles and a cycle computer, I got 30 miles today. The giant drops of rain started while in the Eado and decided to head home before it got too bad.

Ok, I'm a bit confused. If the main hospital building is going to front Cambridge, what's the building that's under construction right now?

 

 Don't believe we've seen what the building will look like. From the first post:

The focus of the project will be the construction of two new buildings on Campus.  One will be a new, state-of-the-art patient care building and the other will offer additional parking and infrastructure capabilities to support the new growth.
