HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – Construction has topped out on a nine-story expansion to Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center.
A multi-year project, the center broke ground in early 2020 and is slated to be patient-ready as a Level II trauma center by the spring of 2022.
The Woodlands, a Howard Hughes Corp. development, is a 28,000-acre master-planned community located about 27 miles north of downtown Houston.
The JLL Project and Development Services, which is managing the construction project, announced the topping out of the 365,000-square-foot expansion to the Memorial Hermann medical tower, 9250 Pinecroft.
Austin Commercial serves as general contractor, PhiloWilke as the architect and SSA as the engineer.
James Selmser, Mark Harrison, Daina Pitzenberger, Steven Donnelly and Rosanna Brock of JLL worked closely with Memorial Hermann Hospital System’s CEO Justin Kenrick, COO Jason Glover, CNO Catherine Giegerich and Vice President of Marketing Linda Nelson to oversee construction and drive Memorial Hermann’s intent to offer innovation in delivery and design throughout the project.
“Through this process, we’ve worked to ensure that this tower was built exactly for the patients and providers who will utilize it every day,” said Memorial Hermann CEO Kenrick. “The addition of the South Tower will provide much needed additional capacity and services to the current area. Memorial Hermann is honored to serve The Woodlands community and looks forward to the future.”
JLL’s Project and Development Services team manages the design, development and construction of commercial real estate projects.
The design of the hospital expansion allows for recent impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The tower will have increased social distancing ability in waiting rooms, in addition to versatile quick-turn spaces, strategic emergency entrances, and more room for navigation of machinery.
At the adjacent existing parking garage, two floors were added to give visitors an extra 404 parking spaces. Further, the northeast parking lot was expanded by an additional 200 spaces. Following the completion of the South Tower completion, an additional 146,000 square feet will be renovated inside of the hospital.
