HOUSTON (Houston Business Journal) – Texas Children's Hospital will invest $50 million in several projects at its West Houston campus at 1-10 and Barker Cypress Rd.

Projects include:

  • adding 18 beds on the fifth floor, which will also contain the specialized isolation unit Texas Children's Hospital is building for highly contagious infectious diseases, including Ebola and pandemic influenza,
  • increasing its operating room count from four to eight,
  • adding a new in-patient unit with 24 beds,
  • building a dedicated interventional radiology suite, and
  • converting current office space into clinical space.

Chanda Cashen Chacón, president of the Texas Children's Hospital West Campus, said she expects the project's first phase — building out the shelled fifth floor — to open by Oct. 1. That project was designed by Page. Tellepsen Builders is doing the contract work.

As for the other projects, Chacón said their goal is to begin them in two and a half years.
