Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, Best Healthcare and Medical Building, 2021
The collaboration between Texas Health and UT Southwestern Medical Center combines the strengths of the area’s top two health care systems to create a new 20-acre medical and hospital campus to serve the growing community. The campus includes an acute care hospital and multi-specialty clinic complex to offer comprehensive health care and enhance the patient experience.
We provided structural design to HKS for both buildings, which was completed in 2019.
- The eight-story, 325,000-square-foot hospital features 80 beds (with the ability to expand to 140 beds), surgical services, emergency department, women’s services and a neonatal intensive care unit.
- The 120,000-square-foot UT Southwestern Medical Center houses primary care practices as well as a multi-specialty clinic featuring neurology, spine surgery and a state-of-the-art concussion rehabilitation facility.
- 10.75"x 48" glulam V-columns support the breezeway canopy between the hospital and medical center.
