Construction on the new Dell Children’s Pediatric Ambulatory Center of Excellence, or PACE, building and two parking garages is set to begin in March, and the project is scheduled to finish in June 2021.
According to Dell Children’s, an expansion is necessary to keep up with growth in Central Texas. The hospital cited data showing that since 2009, more than 5,500 children had to leave Central Texas to receive complex care—and most of those services were in cardiovascular surgery, neurosciences and oncology and hematology.
In addition to the medical offices on the first three floors, the new $113 million PACE building will include 40,000 square feet of office space on the fourth floor for future growth and additional office space, according to Dell Children’s. The two new parking garages will total 1,205 spaces. Construction of the first is set to be complete in May 2020, and the second will be finished in June 2021.
