Medical City Frisco’s new patient tower is on schedule to be complete by December 2022.

The two-story hospital tower will primarily house spine and orthopedics patients, and it will also have surgery and ICU-level care. The foundation of the building allows for growth to eight floors in the future, CEO Patrick Rohan said in an email.

Construction began on the tower in February. The design features a new entrance from Main Street and an additional helicopter pad for transfers, officials said.

The $91 million project was approved in 2019 and includes 300 additional parking spaces, 36 more patient beds and 118,481 square feet of space, project details state.

Other project features include a “healing environment” with natural light and comfortable furnishings.

The patient tower is part of Medical City Healthcare’s investment initiative of more than $1.1 billion to be spent or committed over five years throughout the health care system, officials said.

Investments include expansion and improvements to existing hospitals, new trauma services, oncology, behavioral health care, upgraded technology, and the purchase and construction of new facilities for patients and staff.

“We are proud to be part of and continue to invest in the Frisco community, which continues to grow at a phenomenal pace,” Rohan said in a March news release. “Anticipating future community needs helps keep our neighbors healthy and advances our mission to the care and improvement of human life.”
