Construction work on the project began Nov. 1, according to a news release from the hospital at 12400 Dallas Parkway. Thirty medical and surgical beds alongside two operating suites will be added as part of the project. Completion is scheduled for summer 2022.
“We have seen tremendous growth in the past two years, even outside of COVID-19,” said Brett Lee, president of Texas Health Frisco, in the release. “We’re really excited about the flexibility this additional space gives us to build comprehensive programs, so patients don’t have to leave their neighborhood for their care needs.”
Texas Health Frisco opened in December 2019, and shares its campus with a UT Southwestern medical office building. The sixth and seventh floors were left empty for future growth, the release said.
Lee said women’s services are growing about 7.5% a month in terms of number of births. Inpatient beds for trauma and surgical patients are also in high demand, he added.
“We’re excited to move beyond the pandemic and continue to care for our community for many years to come,” Lee said.
