DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) –  Medical City Dallas will offer women a “luxurious and spacious option” to receive high level, specialized healthcare for a comprehensive range of women’s services in a new, state-of-the-art Women’s Hospital.

Construction on the $125 million hospital begins this month. It will add five floors to the top of Care Tower D, and will feature a total of 222 private and peaceful patient rooms. World-class and innovative care from experienced specialists will also serve the complex needs of newborns, from delivery to intensive care.

“Expanding our Women’s Services and building a specialized hospital allows us to provide the full continuum of women’s healthcare needs in one location,” said Keith Zimmerman, FACHE, President and CEO at Medical City Children’s Hospital. “The addition of two floors for physician offices allows our patients access to the specialists and experts they may need, all in the same building.”

Once the Women’s Hospital expansion is complete it will include:
· 24 modern labor and delivery rooms
· 4 new C-section operating rooms
· 84 Level IV (highest level) Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) rooms
· 12 spacious women’s VIP suites
· 27 women’s medical/surgical rooms
· 19 antepartum rooms
· 56 postpartum rooms
· 2 floors of physician offices for additional convenient access to specialists

The upgraded VIP suites will feature a larger bedroom for mothers, a room for families and a spa-like bathroom. The suites will accommodate family for overnight stays, allow easy access to a nursery on the same floor, and also include concierge amenities such as upgraded linens, chef-prepared meals, family meal options and spectacular views of the city.

Construction is expected to be complete in March 2018 with additional patient rooms opening in April 2018.

Medical City Dallas has cared for the needs of North Texas women, including those with high-risk pregnancies and deliveries, for more than 43 years.
