$80 Million Expansion at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Raises Level of Care for Community
THE WOODLANDS, TX (January07,
Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital, which has been serving The Woodlands and nearby communities for more than 25 years, and has broken ground on a new, seven-story patient tower. The cost of the project is roughly $80 million.
Phase one of the 240,000-square-foot expansion will add eight state-of-the-art surgical suites and surgical support services, including pre-operation and recovery rooms, waiting areas and sterile processing. Four shelled floors will accommodate future growth and could include additional inpatient beds, physician offices or post acute services.
"Since 1991, we have invested more than $180 million to respond to the growth and needs of this dynamic market," said Steve Sanders, Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital Chief Executive Officer. "The greater Montgomery County area is one of the fastest growing areas in the U.S. and it is our responsibility to continue to respond to that growth not only with facilities like the new patient tower, but also technology and a higher level of services."
