Ground was recently broken on South Texas Health System Edinburg’s new five-story patient tower addition in Edinburg, Texas. The project team includes general contractor Robins & Morton and architect Gresham Smith.
The 150,000-square-foot facility will house an emergency department, imaging, a cardiac lab, a clinical lab, an intensive care unit, inpatient rehabilitation and a medical/surgical unit.
Once complete in mid-2022, the updated ED will contain 15 exam rooms, two trauma rooms and four triage rooms. The remainder of the patient tower addition, scheduled for completion in early fall 2022, will consist of 16 suites, 28 inpatient rehabilitation suites, 15 medical/surgical suites and shell space for future expansion.
The project also includes a 20,000-square-foot renovation within the existing facility, including updates to the catheterization lab, the pharmacy and other laboratory spaces.
The renovation work will complete in early 2023.
