Scott & White Healthcare – Round Rock has announced plans for a 58,000-square-foot expansion of its 76-bed Round Rock hospital at University Boulevard. The project will include adding 26 hospital beds, which will be a combination of ICU and general medical/surgical beds, as well as four new operating rooms (increasing to a total of nine), an endoscopy suite (resulting in a total of three suites), and expanding its emergency department beds from 11 to 19. Future campus plans include the addition of a patient bed tower and another medical office building.
Construction is scheduled to begin later this year. The project will include renovating an additional 14,000- square feet.
“Demand for Scott & White medical services in Williamson County has increased significantly, matching the growing population. This expansion was anticipated in the original design of the facility,” said Alfred B. Knight, M.D., CEO and president of Scott & White Healthcare. “We will continue expanding the facility with the goal of better serving the health care needs of our ever growing community.”
Scott & White began construction on its current 272,000-square-foot hospital, multi-specialty clinic and imaging center in 2005, as Phase I of its plan for an expansive medical campus. The specialty clinic opened in October 2006 and the hospital opened in July 2007. Scott & White Hospital – Round Rock celebrated its three-year anniversary on July 30.
