St. David’s HealthCare selected DPR Construction Inc. to oversee expansion of its South Austin Medical Center at 901 W. Ben White Blvd. The price tag is approximately $8 million more than the original estimate, clocking in at approximately $58 million. Work is expected to begin in mid-2017, with completion set for early 2019. The increase is due to expansion of the parking garage.
The expansion will add approximately 14,000 square feet to the emergency department, and two floors to the hospital’s South Tower. The renovation is part of a $275 million capital campaign for the healthcare system. Another project involved the acquisition and renovation of the former Forest Park hospital in North Austin.
