On Wednesday, May 9th, Medical City McKinney held a groundbreaking ceremony to kick-off construction of a new rehabilitation and behavioral health services pavilion.
The $52 million expansion project will allow the hospital to relocate services from the Wysong campus to the main campus, while also adding additional patient beds and enhanced services.
“By expanding and moving these services to our main campus, we will be able to provide our patients with a full continuum of care in one location,” said Ernest C. Lynch, III, FACHE, CEO of Medical City McKinney. “Our patients will be better served when our entire range of healthcare services are centrally located on one campus.”
The rehab and behavioral health pavilion will include:
- 20 inpatient rehabilitation patient rooms
- 80 adult and geriatric behavioral health patient rooms
- Outpatient behavioral health program
- Outdoor healing garden
- Design elements to include focus on natural lighting and open floor plan in common area
“Medical City McKinney is expanding to meet our growing community’s needs,” said Lynch. “This project is just the beginning of a multi-phase expansion for the hospital.”
The rehabilitation and behavioral health pavilion is part of Medical City Healthcare’s major capital investment initiative of more than $1.7 billion spent or committed over five years. Construction is expected to be complete by December 2019.
