HOUSTON - The aging Baby Boomer population has led to some health care institutions expanding in Houston.

Suburb growth:

HCA Gulf Coast Division started construction on a 155,000-sf woman’s center at its Kingwood Medical Center. The $71 million, three-story expansion is slated for completion in fourth quarter 2013 and 100 jobs will be created when it’s completed.

In addition, HCA will break ground in 2013 on a $71 million, 144,000-sf hospital in Pearland on land it already owns.

HCA’s Conroe Regional Medical Center is adding 12 beds to the emergency department with an expected completion in March.

Public arena:

UTMB at Galveston is undergoing massive rebuilding effort after Hurricane Ike. Combined with planned construction before the storm in 2008, the $1.79 billion plan consists of about 200 projects, including the new Jennie Sealy Hospital.

The M.D. Anderson Cancer Center is spending $198 million on a hospital expansion and renovation that will add 185,000 sf in the Texas Medical Center.

The expansion project includes new construction, which will cost about $102 million, and the renovation of about 110,000 sf of existing hospital space, which will cost $96 million.
