Katy, TX (March 9, 2016) Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus, Houston’s first community hospital designed, built and equipped exclusively for children, has proudly served the west Houston area for five years. Since opening their doors in 2011, West Campus has provided more than 750,000 patient encounters in one of the fastest growing pediatric communities.
Upholding Texas Children’s mission of providing the highest-quality health care for children, West Campus is continuing to expand their services to meet the growing needs of their patients. Some of the most recent highlights include the opening of the state-of-the-art special isolation unit, which is the only one of its kind in Texas and the Southwest region, and the activation of the hospital’s helipad that allows all helicopter services in southeast Texas to bring patients directly to West Campus. The hospital is also currently undergoing a three-year, $50 million expansion effort that includes projects that will add a new inpatient capacity of 42 total beds, double operative capacity, substantially increase access to outpatient subspecialty care with the addition of more than 25 new exam rooms, and construct a dedicated interventional radiology suite for high fidelity image guided procedures.
