The new sixth story of Texas Health Hospital Frisco was just completed. The $23.6 million expansion includes 30 new beds (16 medical/surgical, 14 intensive care unit) and two operating rooms.

“The extra space will allow us to be more flexible and address the rising requirements of patients in Collin and Denton counties,” said Brett Lee, president of Texas Health Frisco.

The sixth floor’s construction began in November 2021. Gynecology, spine, urology, and bariatrics patients will be accommodated on the new level.

“With the addition, we now have a dedicated ICU, which allows us to be more efficient with our personnel and create a more supportive patient care environment,” Lee explained.

Texas Health Frisco, which shares a property with a UT Southwestern medical office building, opened in December 2019 and has 63 beds, seven floors, and six operating rooms. Knowing this, Texas Health left the sixth and seventh floors unoccupied for future development.

Frisco is one of the Metroplex’s fastest-growing cities. According to Lee, births are up roughly 11% from the previous year, while OR volumes are up 16% year to date compared to 2021.

Inpatient beds for trauma and surgical patients are also in high demand, with demand increasing by around 10% each month, according to Lee.

With the installation of a new floor, the hospital plans to add three more bariatric surgeons to its medical team later this year.
