Children's Medical Center Plano is celebrating the beginning of its new expansion that will nearly double the number of beds.

Earlier this month, Children’s Medical Center Plano celebrated the planned expansion of the hospital with a signing of the wall of the future home of the Emergency Department in the hospital’s new tower.

Signatures were collected digitally to later be turned into a larger piece of art to be displayed when the tower is completed. The expanded facilities will include:

  • 395,000-square-foot patient tower with 140 new inpatient beds, bringing the total hospital beds to 212
  • Modern patient rooms designed with input from patients, families and the Children’s Health care team
  • A 650-car parking garage for staff and families
  • Bright Family Emergency Room – an updated and nearly doubled emergency care space with 48 exam rooms
  • New capabilities in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and increased capacity to 38 beds
  • Expanded diagnostic and therapeutic services to serve the growing complexity of patient needs
  • Outdoor park space for families to relax amid the comforts of nature
  • Enhanced service offerings and care capabilities in Cardiology, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Orthopedics, Neurology and more, offering surrounding communities the opportunity to receive world-class, critical and highly specialized care closer to home

“When [Children’s Medical Center] said they were going to build the hospital, we were just ecstatic because we knew with a top-level pediatric hospital in Plano, it was going to make a huge difference for not only the community but for the corporate community that comes here for all the amenities that are included,” Mayor John Muns said. “So it’s really important that now they’re almost tripling the size of their footprint here in Plano.”
