This expansion is an exciting venture that will add a 70,000 square foot building to the front of the hospital. The first floor of the new building will be home to a new outpatient surgery center and lab. The new Pediatric Intensive care Unit (PICU) will feature 16 patient-centered private rooms housed with the latest technology and allowing for more privacy. The hospital’s main lobby will be accessed by a concourse connecting the two buildings. In additional phases of this vast construction project, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Radiology waiting areas will be upgraded to make those spaces more child-friendly and family-oriented. The project also will include enhancements throughout the hospital, including a relocation of the hospital’s helipad and an expansion of the parking garage. Completion is scheduled for the end of 2020, positioning Driscoll Children’s Hospital as the premier location for the care and well-being of South Texas infants and children.
