In the nearly 20 years that Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Allen has faithfully served the community, the city of Allen has grown from 45,000 residents to more than 103,000. Texas Health Allen has grown, as well, with a recent completion of the largest expansion in the hospital’s history.
“Growth in Allen and the surrounding communities means it’s necessary that we also expand to meet the needs of those we serve,” said Jared Shelton, FACHE, president of Texas Health Allen.
The new 221,460-square-foot tower adjoining the south side of the main hospital building creates capability for additional beds, bringing the hospital’s total bed count to 88.
Patients choosing Texas Health Allen to access quality care for orthopedic or surgical needs close to home benefit from the 25-bed surgical unit and dedicated rehabilitation gym.
Two new operating rooms designed specifically for orthopedic cases bring the hospital’s total number of operating rooms to seven. Also included in the three-story expansion is a new cardiac cath lab/electrophysiology lab which doubles the hospital’s capability to treat patients in need of fast cardiac interventions. A new lab and pharmacy also help improve efficiency.
The expansion at Texas Health Allen also includes a central utility plant and shell space that creates the opportunity for future expansion, with future capacity of up to 138 beds.
“By investing in new technology and facilities, we can be right there for our friends and neighbors for the next 20 years and beyond,” Shelton said.
