Plans Approved for Houston Methodist ‘Smart Hospital of the Future’ in Cypress

The Houston Methodist board of directors has approved plans for the system’s ninth hospital, to be located in Cypress, Texas. Groundbreaking is expected in the next few months, with opening set for first quarter 2025. The project team includes Page and McCarthy Building Companies.

Sitting on 106 acres, the hospital will be modeled after the comprehensive Houston Methodist West and Houston Methodist The Woodlands hospitals. It is master planned for 400 beds, multiple medical office buildings and provides the acreage for growth and development.

The campus will include the necessary infrastructure for the next century of innovation to improve care and interactions between patients and providers. The proposed smart hospital of the future eliminates the barriers of the traditional four walls and geographic boundaries of hospital rooms.

Smart technology planned includes artificial intelligence systems for predictive analytics, voice technology systems, smart speakers and lights, along with virtual care and remote patient monitoring systems.
