Baylor Grapevine set to open expansion

HDR was the architect for the project and
MEDCO Construction was the general contractor.
 

Baylor Regional Medical Center at Grapevine will become the third largest BHCS facility, based on licensed patient beds, when the hospital opens its new $90 million patient tower on June 10.
Now surpassed only by Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas and Baylor All Saints Medical Center at Fort Worth, Baylor Grapevine’s new patient tower adds 40 beds, bringing total bed numbers to 313, with space to add 68 beds as needed.
Other features include:
• New Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) moves to the second
floor of the new patient tower. The area's design utilizes a pod
concept to allow caregivers and families more privacy than typically
found in open NICU design. Another feature is the five private NICU
rooms for critically ill infants.
• Dedicated Cardiovascular Center uses universal bed concept that allows
patient to stay in same room during hospitalization instead of moving to
different clinical areas as clinical care level changes.
• Expanded radiology department provides services from MRI, CT,
ultrasound, nuclear medicine, interventional radiology and diagnostic
radiology in one centralized location on first floor of new patient care
tower.
• The emergency department has space to add nine new emergency department
The price tag on the expansion is between $85 million and $90 million, according to Steven R. Newton, west region president, Baylor Health Care System. The hospital announced this latest expansion in fall 2011.
"Our goal is to continue to bring quality health care to Northeast Tarrant and Southern Denton counties," said Newton. "Area residents want access to specialized care in their community. Our expansion is part of providing that level of care."
