McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. was recently awarded the CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Tyler expansion project in Tyler, Texas. Located on 800 East Dawson Street near downtown, the CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Tyler is undergoing a major expansion and modernization project by adding a new bed tower and parking garage.
A new glass masonry façade bed tower will significantly add to the hospital’s ability to care for patients with two new trauma rooms, 48 ICU beds, an emergency room with 54 treatment beds and two helipads. The project plans also include replacing the existing garage with a new, 297,000-square-foot parking garage. The parking structure will have one story below ground and four stories above ground, with a 125-foot-long sky bridge connecting the garage to the tower.
Construction on a new parking garage began earlier this year and is expected to be completed at the end of March 2018. In the final phase of the project, McCarthy will finish out a 23,000-square-foot shell floor for the existing CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital – Tyler, the first heart hospital in this region of Texas.
In addition to the newly awarded CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Tyler expansion, some of McCarthy’s healthcare projects include CHRISTUS Spohn in Corpus Christi; The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Alkek Hospital Expansion in Houston; The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center The Pavilion expansion in Houston; the Children’s Health Plano Campus, Specialty Center II and the Carl R.
