WICHITA FALLS - Construction crews are prepping the ground at the corner of Eighth and Holliday where a new addition to Red River Hospital will be constructed.

Rodney Martin, chief operations officer at Trinity Hughes Construction in Wichita Falls, said they are in a joint venture with Lott Brothers Construction out of Austin for the build. The project will take about ten months.

The three story, 31,000-sf structure will have patient rooms, a gym, offices and an underground parking garage for staff.

Jack Warburton, CEO of Red River Hospital, said the design of the new facility is impressive and will add more functionality and therapy options for patients.

The 22 inpatient rooms will give the hospital the ability to care for a total of 96 inpatients, when including the 74 rooms in the existing hospital. Warburton said they will hire 30 additional employees.

According to a media release from the hospital, the new facility will cost $10.5 million.
