The Dell Children’s Medical Center campus in Mueller is set to break ground on an expansion plan following the announcement of significant investment over the next three years.

The pediatric hospital Feb. 10 announced a $300 million investment in capital, equipment and programming over the next three years, made possible due to a “substantial investment” by Ascension, as well as a $30 million matching grant from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, according to a company news release.


“The time is now to continue expanding complex pediatric care in Central Texas,” said Christopher Born, the president of Dell Children’s Medical Center, in the Feb. 10 news release.

Dell Children will use $113 million of the investment funds to construct its new pediatric outpatient facility, which will house cardiovascular, neuroscience and cancer programs, as previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper.

The four-story, 161,000-square-foot facility, named Dell Children’s Specialty Pavilion, is slated to break ground soon and open its doors to patients in spring 2021.



Investment dollars will also go to provide backing for a new partnership with Dell Medical School at The University of Texas to develop a maternal fetal medicine program that will add a delivery unit and neonatal intensive care unit expansion at Dell Children’s Medical Center, according to the news release.

Dell Children’s Medical Center announced it will additionally add more cardiac ICU beds at its main hospital, allowing for the expansion of its pediatric heart program to include heart transplant surgery.
