HOUSTON - Texas Children's Hospital plans to invest $50 million into several projects at its west Houston campus to meet demand of the rapidly growing west Houston neighborhoods and suburbs.

The hospital's West Campus is located at I-10 and and Barker Cypress Rd. near the Energy Corridor. The projects include:

•  increasing its operating room count from four to eight,
•  adding a new in-patient unit with 24 beds,
•  building a dedicated interventional radiology suite,
•  adding 18 beds on the fifth floor, which will also contain the specialized isolation unit Texas Children's Hospital is building for highly conntagious infectious diseases, including Ebola and pandemic influenza; and
•  converting current office space into clinical space.

The projects will happen in phases over the next several years, said Chanda Cashen Chacón, president of Texas Children's Hospital West Campus. She expects to have the first phase of the project — building out the shelled fifth floor — to open by October 1.

The system is also in the process of building out its Woodlands campus as well as approaching the beginning of a major expansion of its Texas Medical Center campus.
