As the nation’s healthcare systems begin to emerge from under the full weight of the COVID-19 pandemic in search of opportunities to expand, a growing number of construction projects are moving closer to reality.
For example, Texas Children's Hospital recently released renderings of its new facility for children and women in North Austin, according to KVUE. Groundbreaking is anticipated this spring for the $485 million hospital, which is set to open in early 2024.
The renderings provide a first look at the 365,000-square-foot, 52-bed hospital. It will include neonatal intensive care, pediatric intensive care, operating rooms, epilepsy monitoring, an emergency center, sleep center, acute care, diagnostic imaging, and a center for advanced fetal interventions and fetal surgery.
The facility will also feature a 170,000-square-foot outpatient building that will connect patients and family to Texas Children's subspecialties. There will also be more than 1,200 free parking spaces on site.See the latest posts on our homepage
