Officials from Children’s Health unveiled expansion plans for Children’s Medical Center Plano during an Oct. 26 groundbreaking ceremony. A new seven-floor, 300,000 square-foot tower will be built to nearly double the hospital’s capacity.

The new tower will house expanded specialty healthcare programs including cardiology, oncology, gastroenterology, orthopedics and neurology among others. When completed, the number of available beds will increase 72 to 212.

The date of the groundbreaking also marked the sixteenth anniversary of the Plano campus. On Oct. 26, 2005, officials broke ground on what was then the first pediatric hospital north of Dallas. Since that time, the hospital has seen the number of patient families increase year-over-year.

Many of those families still travel to the Dallas campus for specialty care not available in Plano. With the expanded facility, many of those care options will now be accessible closer to home.

The new tower is expected to be completed by the beginning of 2024.
