New Construction Projects Expand Austin’s Healthcare Market

Two new construction projects will expand the healthcare market in Austin. The first is an expansion of HCA St. David’s North Austin Medical Center Women’s Center, and the second is a one-story vertical expansion at HCA St. David’s North Austin Medical Center. The general contractor for both projects is Brasfield & Gorrie.

The Women’s Center four-story vertical expansion project will consist of a 166,369-square-foot addition, including four C-section operating rooms, 36 labor/delivery/recovery/postpartum rooms and 24 antepartum rooms. Following the completion of the vertical expansion, Brasfield & Gorrie will renovate 28,325 square feet of interior space, adding 30 neonatal intensive care unit beds and 32 full-term nursery beds and four post-partum rooms. 

The North Austin Medical Center project will add 21,214 square feet and 32 medical surgery patient rooms. It will include prefabricated exterior wall panels and bathroom pods. With prefabrication, off-site work can run concurrently with activities on site. Less work is contingent on weather conditions or material delivery lead times, which is an advantage for maintaining project schedules. Minimizing the number of workers on site also increases safety.
