Methodist Hospital Surgery Expansion and Renovation

To increase patient outcomes, further minimize patient stays, and to keep Methodist on the cutting edge of technology, we are in the process of expanding and renovating our surgical suites. 

  • 12 operating rooms expanded to 15, including 2 heart and 1 endovascular suites
  •  Operating room size increases from 420 square feet to 650 square feet
  • Creation of Hybrid Operating Rooms (Inpatient and Outpatient Capabilities in one room)
  • Merger of pre and post anesthesia areas
  •  32 prep/recovery rooms expand to 44 private rooms
  •  Cardiac services relocated into one convenient space

After completion, Methodist will begin offering Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement, a surgery that is minimally invasive, often recommended for patients too sick for open-heart surgery. 


Current Project Updates:

Set to Open February 2017

Project cost: $90 million (includes $12.6 million for new parking garage)
The project is being done in three (3) phases:

PHASE ONE: Dietary Department and Endoscopy (Complete)
Phase One consisted of extensive mechanical and electrical work needed to construct the new operating rooms. This phase involved updating the kitchen, dining room and food service areas. A new Endoscopy center is now located on the second floor.

PHASE TWO: Operating Rooms (Current Project)
Phase Two consists of expanding the hospital into the space that was occupied by the employee parking garage. It also involves moving the Surgery Support area to the second floor – including the offices, locker rooms and the physicians lounge. The 15 operating rooms will be constructed in the newly created space on the first floor.

Construction on the Pre-Operative and Post Anesthesia Care Units are the final pieces of the project.
