Memorial Hermann

Houston, TX

Acute Care Healthcare On the Boards


The Susan and Fayez Sarofim Pavilion will add 1 million square feet of state-of-the-art spaces for surgery, emergency care, intensive care, and administrative and support services. In addition to replacing 71 existing patient beds, the facility adds 160 new beds, 24 operating rooms, and 16 emergency room bays. A 330-seat café offers patients, families, and staff an attractive respite.

Seven shelled floors provide potential space for adding 264 beds and six operating rooms to accommodate future growth. An additional building will provide a 750-space parking garage and infrastructure capabilities to support the campus expansion.

The Life Flight® 4-space helipad will be relocated atop the new facility as well, providing a large space for Houston’s only hospital-based air medical service.
