Gatesville, TexasCoryell Memorial Healthcare System recently broke ground on a renovation and expansion project at Coryell Memorial Hospital in Gatesville, Texas. The hospital will remain fully operational during the development.

“This is a great moment for our organization and our mission as we strive to bring new services to Gatesville, Texas,” David Byrom, CEO of Coryell Memorial Healthcare System, said in prepared remarks. “It takes over 500 full and part-time individuals to support this system, and they are all a part of our team and mission as we continue to bring quality and patient-centered healthcare to Gatesville, Texas and the communities we serve.”

The project is designed by Mike Hale Architects, while Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) serves as the construction manager for the roughly 117,000 square feet of additions and renovations. The expansion component of the hospital includes the addition of operating rooms, materials management, new 25-bed hospital wing and a 16-bed Meadows Physical rehabilitation wing, as well as a new central plant. Renovations include spaces for pharmacy, lab, offices, but also converting current hospital rooms into The Welcome Assisted Living rooms and some of the current Welcome rooms into Oaks Independent Living Apartments.

“This is an exciting day for the project team, and it is great to see this project get underway,” said Corbett Nichter, senior vice president with AP. “Many hours have been poured into this project on the front-end to ensure that the design team, construction team and Coryell Memorial are aligned towards a common vision for this project.” Construction is currently slated for completion in the second quarter of 2018.
