In an effort to create a state of the art women’s and children’s facility that becomes the anchor for a culture of outstanding, comprehensive care in the south Texas region, University Hospital embarked on a new 14-story 698,000 sf Hospital in the South Texas Medical Center. The hospital will house close to 300 beds and contain a dedicated pediatric emergency department, private NICU and pediatric rooms, and women’s urgent care center. Included in the project is a new 900 car patient/visitor garage that is connected directly to the hospital by a bridge. The new hospital will house highest level of care in South Texas with a Level IV Maternal Fetal Medicine and Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit designations. The hospital was created with evidence based design principles focusing on family centered care and is seeking LEED silver certification.
