​​​WEST HOUSTON, KATY - Four hospitals in the West Houston and Katy areas are expanding their campuses in an effort to make a trip to the hospital a little more accessible, according to Community Impact Newspaper.

Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital will open a new patient tower in January 2016 with additional projects opening from spring until fall 2016.

Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus is also planning for growth. “We have a $50 million expansion underway right now, and it’s a three-year expansion,” Texas Children’s West Campus President Chanda Cashen Chacón said.

The hospital is expanding its medical office building space to include ambulatory care and adding space in its inpatient building for beds along with expanding operating rooms. The hospital recently opened 18 acute-care beds. Eight of those beds are in a special isolation unit, which is exclusive to the West campus. By the end of the expansion, the hospital will be an 86-bed facility.​

In January, Houston Methodist West Hospital will begin Phase 2 of its expansion project, which will include taking its patient bed count from 193 to 288 and adding more operating rooms.

Near Hwy. 6 in West Houston, MD Anderson Cancer Center is expanding to provide medical services to those who may not want to travel to the Texas Medical Center downtown. Plans for an outpatient facility were approved and will be built east of Hwy. 6 and north of I-10.
