Christus Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler announced a $9.9-million expansion of its neonatal intensive care and labor and delivery units. Construction is anticipated to begin in mid-June 2018, with completion scheduled for spring 2019.
Part of the phased project will focus on expanding the hospital’s NICU to 28 licensed private or semi-private beds. The Christus Mother Frances Hospital NICU is the only Level III facility in East Texas’ Smith County. The expansion’s second phase will add five private triage rooms to the Labor and Delivery Unit, along with five more delivery suites.
The expansion is one of two expansion projects underway at the facility, which is located at 800 E. Dawson St. near downtown Tyler, TX. In April 2017, work began on a 200,000-square-foot tower located on the south side of the hospital campus.
