In March, Memorial Hermann Katy announced a $167 million expansion that will add nearly 100 more beds, a third professional office building and more parking.

Future phases will double the trauma center, add obstetrical emergency rooms, and expand the sports medicine and breast care center.

CEO Jerry Ashworth said renovations to the sixth and fifth floors of the hospital will be completed in April and July, respectively.

Officials said these efforts are to account for the area’s growing population, which is expected to hit 607,000 by 2027, per Katy Area Economic Development Council projections.
