Dell Children's Medical Center just announced that it will build a new, full-service hospital on Avery Ranch Boulevard in Williamson County, and that it will add a 4-story tower to the main location.

According to the release:


Totaling more than 135,000 square feet, the hospital will include 36 beds and emergency and trauma services, with two operating rooms, endoscopy and procedure rooms, and sleep labs, and shelled space for future growth. The north campus will also include a 60,000-square-foot medical office building and dedicated free parking.

The Mueller expansion:

The tower will include one floor dedicated to pediatric critical care, one floor for hematology/oncology inpatient services, and another floor dedicated to general acute inpatient services, with a fourth floor shelled for future expansion.

The hospital broke ground on the Dell Children's Speciality Pavilion in March.
