FORT WORTH - Barely a year after opening more than 500,000 sf of new facilities, Cook Children’s Medical Center is embarking on another expansion that will add a six-story tower on the south side of its Medical District campus.

The $349 million, three-year project will include a new pediatric emergency department, 12 operating rooms and a heart center. The upper two floors of the 314,000-sf tower will be left unfinished for further expansion. The new tower will occupy a site now used for a prayer garden and a labyrinth.

The work will also entail renovating parts of three floors in the main medical center tower which opened in 1989. The hospital will also build an urgent-care center at Rosedale St. and Sixth Ave.

In 2009, Cook Children’s announced a $250 million expansion that increased the size of its campus by about 40 percent. Most of those new facilities opened in mid-2012, and the last phase, an off-campus employee office tower, opened this year.
