Katy, TX News (May 15, 2014) – Construction on the new six-story patient tower and second medical plaza is now underway at Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, and officials are encouraging visitors to plan ahead and utilize on-site resources, including directional signage, to navigate around the campus.
To facilitate construction equipment and crews on the building sites, hospital officials have temporarily relocated the bulk of visitor parking to the north side, or backside, of the campus. During this time, patients visiting Medical Plaza I should park in the northwest corner of the campus, while those visiting the hospital should park in the northeast corner of the campus. Handicap spots and dedicated parking for laboring moms are still in close proximity to the hospital and medical plaza entrances.
Directional signage has been installed around the campus to guide visitors to the appropriate lots. Additionally, the hospital is running a shuttle for those who need help getting to and from their vehicles. Visitors can call 281-644-7130 to access the shuttle service.
“This is an exciting time for Memorial Hermann and Katy area residents,” said Scott Barbe, CEO of Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital. “The expansion will enable us to better meet the wide-ranging health needs of our community.”
Scheduled to open in Summer 2015, the new patient tower will add additional capacity in multiple units, including surgical suites, medical and surgical beds, labor and delivery, and the emergency center, and will bring the hospital’s total bed count to over 200. It also will be constructed to accommodate future growth. Medical Plaza II will house physician office space, as well as space for expanded sports medicine and outpatient imaging services.
