Katy Hospital Ready to Go with 100-Bed Expansion
In March, Memorial Hermann Katy will begin work on a $167 million expansion that will add nearly 100 more beds, a third professional office building and more parking.
Eighty medical/surgical patient beds and six antepartum beds are being added, bringing the hospital’s total bed count to close to 300. Plans also include the addition of two new operating rooms, four neonatal intensive care unit rooms and an expansion of the cardiac catheterization lab.
Future phases will add obstetrical emergency rooms, expand the sports medicine and breast care center and double the trauma center, which serves as the Katy area’s only Level III Trauma Center.
Officials said these efforts are to account for the area’s growing population, which is expected to hit 607,000 by 2027, per Katy Area Economic Development Council projections.
