Houston Methodist The Woodlands CEO Debbie Sukin announces a $240 million expansion for the hospital.

After only two years since its opening, Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital announced a $240 million expansion May 29 which will bring a new patient tower to the location.

Houston Methodist CEO Debbie Sukin said the new patient tower will bring an additional 100 beds to the medical, surgical and women's areas of the hospital.

The announcement also includes 10 new operating rooms, an expansion of the hospital's Endoscopy Center, expansion of the Heart Center, the diagnostic imaging department—including an enhanced Neuro-Diagnostic and Interventional Center—and the Emergency Center.

Sukin said she anticipates the project will also bring an additional 350 employees to the hospital.

"We're absolutely committed to leading medicine in this community," Sukin said. "We are absolutely committed to achieving that vision for being unparalleled in safety, service, quality and innovation, and continuing to grow and develop as the demand is there. That's what we're doing; we're just being responsive to the community. We are so very grateful for the support of this community."

Ann Snyder, who serves on Houston Methodist The Woodlands board of trustees and is a director for The Woodlands Township, said the best is yet to come from the hospital.

"I'm extremely honored to be on the board of trustees," Snyder said. "I believe in our promise to offer the highest quality care and to explore medical innovations for today and the future."

The groundbreaking for the hospital project is anticipated for Sept. 27, with an anticipated completion date in the first quarter of 2022.

The announcement took place during Houston Methodist's centennial celebration, where guests were shown an interactive touchscreen wall which will be housed in The Woodlands location for six weeks. The wall details the history of the hospital, staff members and procedures performed there. It will eventually be transported to the Texas Medical Center.

Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital opened in June 2017.
