The South Texas Health System Edinburg in Edinburg recently topped out a new, five-story patient tower addition, signifying the structural completion of the project.
The 150,000-square-foot facility will house an emergency department, imaging, cardiac lab, clinical lab, intensive care unit, inpatient rehabilitation and medical/surgical unit. Once complete in mid-2022, the updated ED will contain 15 exam rooms, two trauma rooms and four triage rooms. It will also contain a dedicated pediatric ED.
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 portion of work will complete in early 2023.
Robins & Morton is serving as the general contractor and the architect is Gresham Smith.
