​​​The medical tower, part of the CHRISTUS Spohn Shoreline Hospital, will add to the skyline when completed Spring 2019CORPUS CHRISTI – A shiny new building will officially become part of the Corpus Christi skyline one day in the spring 2019.

A "topping out" celebration was held to mark the final pouring of cement on the new Christus Spohn Shoreline Hospital complex's uppermost floor.

It was a big milestone for the massive $335 million undertaking.

"We've done 23,000 cubic yards of concrete that averages out to about 700 yards a week," Sr. Project Manager Preston Cope said. "So there's about five-million pounds of rebar installed on the structure of the building. We started the structure in December of this year."

There will be a new imaging room and additional operating rooms on the second floor.

There will also be a new emergency department to replace the current emergency room.
