Breaking New Ground Project
Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, which has served the Greater Katy area since 1981, has embarked on an $85 million expansion to meet the needs of the growing community. Construction is now under way on a new patient tower and a neighboring medical plaza.
Renovations to the existing hospital include new surgical suites, labor and delivery, an expanded emergency department, and more.
The six-story, 229,000-square-foot patient tower will add capacity in multiple areas, including surgical suites, medical and surgical beds, labor and delivery, and the new Emergency Center. When construction is complete, the hospital’s total bed count will grow from 142 to 210 beds. Additionally, the first four floors will be operational, while the top two floors will be shelled space to accommodate future growth. This will allow the hospital to assess what services are needed most in the coming years and use the space accordingly. When the top two floors are eventually built out, the hospital’s total patient bed count could grow to over 300 beds. The patient tower will be completed in fall 2016.
The new Medical Plaza 2 will be completed by the end of April 2015. “Memorial Hermann is utilizing state-of-the-art design and construction technologies to provide quality and efficiency with cost-effective tilt-wall construction historically not utilized for healthcare facilities,” said Marshall Heins, Memorial Hermann senior vice president and chief facility services officer.
