Healthcare organizations continue to expand their construction activities as they emerge from the year-long COVID-19 pandemic.
In Houston, officials with Houston Methodist recently announced the purchase of 106 acres and plans to build its ninth hospital in the Cypress area, according to Community Impact.
The new campus will be modeled after the comprehensive Houston Methodist West and Houston Methodist The Woodlands facilities and will ultimately have 400 beds, multiple medical office buildings and room for future growth. It will offer services in areas such as cancer, heart, neurosciences, women’s services, orthopedics and sports medicine.
The new hospital could open as early as 2024 and ultimately employ more than 500 people, according to hospital officials, who added that outpatient clinics and medical staff offices are slated to open first.
