Methodist Hospital embarked on its largest construction project in its history, which expanded the footprint of the Methodist Hospital campus by 445,000 square feet. The project included renovations and expansions for Methodist Hospital and Methodist Children’s Hospital. Highlights of the project include:

Methodist Hospital
Expansion of the Methodist Hospital Central Tower with a new entrance making the campus even more convenient for women having babies at Methodist Hospital.

Expansion of the adult emergency department to 48 treatment rooms.

Expansion of the sub-level surgical pre-operating and post-operating areas and an additional nine story parking garage, which will allow easy patient access from the parking garage to surgical suites.

Methodist Children’s Hospital
Expansion of Methodist Children’s Hospital Emergency Department to 40 beds. Methodist Children’s Hospital has the busiest children’s emergency department in the nation.

Addition of a six-story patient care tower and new entrance for Methodist Children’s Hospital.

Expansion of Methodist Children’s Hospital’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), resulting in 94 beds. The hospital currently has one of the largest NICUs in the region.

More than 90 percent of the patient rooms are private rooms, for the comfort and convenience of patients and their families.
