Memorial Hermann Opens 81-Bed Hospital in Cypress
- Apr 04, 2017
Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital is now open. The 32-acre campus encompasses an 81-bed hospital with modern operating rooms, an intensive care unit and neonatal intensive care unit.
The facility located in Cypress, Texas, was completed in 24 months and is currently one of the country’s largest tilt-wall hospitals. In a tilt-up construction project, the walls are poured on site in large slabs of concrete and then raised into position.
Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital comprises 20,000 cubic yards of concrete, more than 2,500 tons of steel framing and 211 miles of data cables. Also, more than 100 physicians spanning at least 20 specialties are affiliated to the new medical center.
Plans for future growth include doubling the number of inpatient beds to 145, the construction of a dedicated Memorial Hermann Life Flight helipad, two additional patient bed towers and two medical plazas.
We really focused on the future when designing these buildings, Kyle Stanzel, vice president of operations & COO at Memorial Hermann Cypress, said in a prepared statement. We wanted to ensure our campus would be ready and able to grow alongside this already quickly growing community when the time comes and that need is there.
