Work has officially begun on a new patient tower at Medical City Frisco.

The facility broke ground Feb. 26 on the $91 million project, according to a news release from Medical City Frisco. The two-story patient tower will create more than 118,481 square feet of space, adding 36 more patient care beds to bump the hospital’s bed count to 97.


Additional project features include a “healing environment” with natural light and comfortable furnishings. The tower will include large patient rooms, a spacious waiting area, and 300 more parking spaces will be added as a result of the project.

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

The patient tower was approved in 2019, according to the release, and is expected to be completed in December 2022.
