South Tower Under Construction at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center

WOODLANDS, TX — Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital’s South Tower expansion is the development of a new eight-story patient tower. The addition will tie into the existing hospital’s structure to add 138 patient beds, increase the surgical department by five operating rooms (ORs), expand the cardiopulmonary department, and significantly enlarge the hospital’s imaging department and associated support departments. The project will also include the expansion of an existing parking garage, new connecting pedestrian bridge, and the construction of a new surface lot.

Expanding the Surgical Department for Patient-Centered Care
Memorial Hermann The Woodlands is the busiest suburban campus in the Memorial Hermann Health System. Due to the need for additional surgical spaces the team created a design to increase the count while remaining operational. The current surgery department houses 18 existing ORs with three central surgical cores. The renovation and the expansion of this department will increase the ORs by five. A separate central core with three ORs will be added with the remaining two new ORs to extend the existing OR central core. Each central core hub will provide specialty care to streamline the Surgical Department’s operationally efficiencies.

Construction is slated to be completed in 2022.

The South Patient Bed Tower team recently signed their names in history before watching the last structural steel beam get raised into place. It was a milestone day for Memorial Hermann’s growth in The Woodlands community.

  • The architectural team at PhiloWilke has put in over 32,000 hours.

  • There was over 16,500 cubic yards of concrete poured, along with over 590 pounds of structural steel.
