Construction Gets Underway on TX Children’s Hospital

Construction recently kicked off on the 365,000-square-foot Texas Children’s Hospital for children and women in Austin. The 52-bed freestanding hospital, which will serve families in Austin and Central Texas, is scheduled to be completed in first quarter 2024.

The hospital will include an urgent care facility. In addition, it will have an adjacent 170,000-square-foot outpatient building offering care for numerous pediatric subspecialties.

McCarthy Building Companies Inc. was selected as the general contractor with Page as the project architect.

“McCarthy has extensive healthcare construction experience, and we’re honored to work with Texas Children’s and be able to bring additional pediatric care to the people of Austin,” said Joe Jouvenal, McCarthy’s southern region president. “Our team has shown incredible flexibility in keeping this multi-building fast track project on schedule and overcoming multiple challenges in the design process.”
