HOUSTON - Memorial Hermann Healthcare System is launching a $533 million expansion that will add a major hospital tower and 160 additional hospital beds to its facility in the Texas Medical Center campus.

The master plan project includes construction of the Hermann Pavilion 2, a 17-story hospital that will provide the Texas Medical Center with more than 1 million sf of expanded emergency room, operating room, intensive care and administrative support capacity.

The hospital will include 160 additional new inpatient beds (plus 71 replacement beds), 24 new operating rooms, with six additional shell space floors for future patient bed expansion.

A helipad on the roof of the hospital will provide expanded capacity for the Memorial Hermann Life Flight air ambulance.

The construction of a new six-story parking and infrastructure building will provide additional parking, future space for a new kitchen service and the expansion of hospital heating, cooling and emergency generator systems.

The Texas Medical Center campus operates one of only two Level I trauma centers in the greater Houston area, providing 24/7 emergency and trauma care. The master plan project is scheduled for completion in 2018.
