Progress is being made on Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center's South Tower expansion, which is expected to open in June.

The expansion began construction in September 2019 and totals 351,000 square feet with eight floors and a connector bridge for a parking garage.


Memorial Hermann officials said there have been over 1 million work hours put into the project since work began, and there have been no significant delays so far.

Once the tower fully opens, it will increase the total beds for the hospital to around 550 from its current 397.
