1.2M-SF expansion for Baylor, CHI St. Luke's McNair campus1.2M-SF expansion for Baylor, CHI St. Luke's McNair campushttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=115602015-12-21T06:00:00Z2015-12-21T21:00:00Z

​​HOUSTON - The Baylor College of Medicine and CHI St. Luke's Health plan to break ground on the next phase of their McNair Campus in early 2016.

The next phase of the campus will feature a second patient tower that will house 420 beds, and a medical office building. 

The patient tower is expected to begin construction in January 2016 and the medical office building will begin in the fall.

The projects are expected to be completed by 2019.

Once completed, the project is expected to have cost $1.1 billion and will be more than 1.2 million sf. The hospital will feature 650 beds altogether and will feature ambulatory services, operating rooms, laboratories and office space for clinicians.

In addition, the Texas Heart Institute will relocate its operations to the new McNair campus. There will also be facilities for basic science and translational research.

The Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center McNair campus is a byproduct of the joint venture between the two institutions following the $2 billion acquisition of St. Luke's Health from the Episcopal Diocese of Texas by Colorado-based Catholic Health Initiatives. 

CHI St. Luke's and Baylor are building the new campus to eventually move out of the existing facility in the medical center, which was built in 1954 and is now outdated.
