Press Release

New tower will expand Texas Children’s critical care services

In 2016, significant progress was made on Texas Children’s new pediatric tower, which will expand the care we deliver to our most critically ill patients once the building opens in August 2018.


The 25-floor, 640,000-square-foot tower will house various critical care services, including 126 beds for pediatric and cardiovascular intensive care, six new operating rooms, four cardiovascular ORs and four catheterization labs. It also will be the new home of Texas Children’s Heart Center.
