Texas Health Denton is constructing a new building with mothers, babies and families in mind, as the hospital expands to serve the rapidly growing Denton County area.
The 215,000-square-foot Center for Women includes a labor and delivery center housing 12 labor and delivery rooms, 29 postpartum and antepartum beds and two dedicated surgical suites for C-sections to ensure availability of an operating room for urgent or planned surgical deliveries. It also includes a new breast center and spaces for physical therapy, cardiac rehab, the sleep center and support services. The project adds 10 emergency department beds to the existing 28.
“The design of this space and the experience we want to provide to the community will have direct input from our consumers and our dedicated care team so that the experience our patients feel when they are going through their care journey exceeds their expectations,” said Kathi Cox, senior vice president, Integrated Experience, at Texas Health.
The new building continues expansion of the hospital’s women’s and infants’ services, which also included a new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
“As the sole provider of OB and NICU services in Denton, we are especially excited to build a new facility for our patients,” said Jeff Reecer, president of Texas Health Denton.
Because of area growth, the hospital expects deliveries to increase by 23 percent over the next 10 years. The new building will help accommodate this growth, Reecer said.
The building is expected to open in summer 2022.
“This project supports the Texas Health Mission of improving the lives of the people in the communities we serve,” Reecer said. “We want to continue to provide modern services for our families and babies.”
