Texas Children's Hospital New 25-Story Tower

Recommended Posts

Doesn't appear that they got finished. Looks like they got the mast up though. 

Look for another Main St lane closure soon so they can set the boom and counterweights!

Quote

In an effort to meet the growing needs of our patients, we’re adding a 19-floor pediatric tower to the existing building base next to Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women. The new tower, currently named "Tower E," is slated to come online in 2018 and will include the following enhancements:


Intensive Care Unit (ICU) - 6 floors
Increases capacity to 129 beds

Larger rooms, patient and family focused
All ICUs are adjacent, including Cardiovascular Intensive Care Units
 
Heart Center - 7 floors
All Critical Care units are co-located

Cardiovascular Operating Rooms proximal to other high acuity operating rooms
Maintains functionality of the Heart Center
 
Helipad - Roof
Enables transport of critically ill patients
 

Renovation of the West Tower will follow to optimize efficiency of the Emergency Center areas and provide dedicated patient and family space. Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services will be located throughout the new spaces so that care can be delivered close to where patients are. The expansion of the hospital’s facilities and programs in the Texas Medical Center will create access and allow us to provide the best quality care for the children who need us the most.

^ Does this mean that they've announced yet another new tower that they'll build after they finish the 25 story children's hospital tower? If this is another new tower, where will they put it? The area seems built out to the max.

 

Or is this the same tower as the one under construction in this thread?

 

thnx urb.

No.  They're adding 19 floors to an existing building.  It'll add up to 25 floors total.
