Investment will include two additional floors, patient beds, operating rooms and support spaces

Round Rock, TX – St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center announced today the start of construction on the hospital’s $53.1-million expansion. The expansion project will include two additional floors, with a 34-bed patient care unit, as well as four additional operating rooms (ORs) and support spaces.

The capital expansion is part of a $953-million investment in Central Texas healthcare infrastructure that St. David’s HealthCare announced in February.

“This investment in St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center allows us to continue offering exceptional care in our rapidly growing community. The additional floors will increase room capacity and provide more availability for specialty care,” Jeremy Barclay, chief executive officer at St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center, said. “I am privileged to lead a team of dedicated healthcare professionals eager to serve the community, and it is compelling to hear patients speak of the extraordinary care they received. Because I strongly believe our team provides exceptional care, I want more people to experience this level of care when our help may be needed.”

St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center’s two additional floors will include a fifth floor for a 34-bed intermediate care unit, as well as a fourth floor for future expansion. A one-story addition will be added to the hospital’s existing surgical suite, providing space for two equipped ORs and space for two future ORs.

The expansion will provide the hospital with more OR space to grow surgical specialties including neurosurgery, advanced orthopedic and robotic services, among other complex specialties.

Upon completion of the expansion, St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center will have more than 200 beds and 11 ORs in use, with space for two additional rooms in the future. The hospital expects to hire over 60 new employees for additional positions being added within two years.

Construction is estimated to be completed in 2023.
