HOUSTON - Texas Orthopedic Hospital plans to add two floors totaling 112,500 sf as part of an expansion plan, according to Debra Burbridge, vice president of marketing for HCA Gulf Coast Division.

Construction is expected to begin next year. The expansion allows for the privatization of patient beds as well as the creation of clinical, business office and educational space on the fourth and fifth floors, said Karen Bard, a marketing official from the hospital.

The hospital is owned and operated by Hospital Corp. of America (HCA), Houston's second largest health care system, according to Houston Business Journal research.

HCA also operates the Women's Hospital of Texas, which is in the process of finishing a 72,000-sf expansion that will add a pediatric floor and pediatric support area in its emergency department.

When finished, the Women's Hospital of Texas project will cost around $26.5 million, according to Linda Russell, the hospital's CEO. Part of the build includes shell space on the hospital's fourth floor that will allow for future growth.
