Dell Children’s Medical Center plans to build a new children’s hospital and medical office building in Northwest Austin and expand its Mueller campus, according to a May 7 news release.
The new hospital will be built on 34 acres near the southeast corner of the intersection of Avery Ranch Boulevard and Toll 183A in Williamson County. When completed, the new 135,000-square-foot hospital will contain 36 beds, an emergency room, two operating rooms, endoscopy rooms and space for future expansion.
The medical office building will include 60,000 square feet.
Construction is scheduled to begin in February, with a November 2022 completion date, according to the news release.
“We are excited about this next phase of growth at Dell Children’s, as we have seen a tremendous need to continue expanding pediatric services since opening Dell Children’s Medical Center in 2007,” said Dell Children’s president Christopher M. Born. “We remain committed to growing alongside our growing Central Texas communities.”
Construction on the new hospital will begin February 2021, and it is expected to open in November 2022.
Dell Children’s Medical Center, located at 4900 Mueller Blvd., Austin, additionally announced expansion plans on May 7. The North Austin hospital located in the Mueller development will add a four-story building with 72 beds and space for future services. One floor will each be dedicated to pediatric critical care, hematology/oncology inpatient services and general acute inpatient services. The fourth floor will be used for future expansion, according to the news release.
Three parking garages are also planned for Dell Children’s Mueller campus, which will include a total of 2,600 parking spaces.
