The new Trauma and Critical Care Tower at Methodist Dallas Medical Center consisted of a 248,000-square-foot, six-story building expansion and renovation project. Approximately 67,000 square feet of the expansion will be shelled for future finish out. Mechanical RTU’s are located on the sixth floor roof with a louvered screen wall enclosure. The primary functions of the new expansion include Emergency, Surgery, Central Sterile, Critical Care, along with a dedicated Central Energy Plant installation.
The structure was designed to accommodate a future 6-story vertical expansion of the tower footprint for additional Critical Care or Medical/Surgical patient beds. The building expansion serves as the new 24-hour entry to the hospital and provides a beacon for the south side of the campus.
