ROUND ROCK, Texas – Ascension Seton Williamson has announced a remarkable addition to its facilities with the construction of a new six-story medical tower, as part of a substantial $230 million expansion. This development aims to meet the growing demands for healthcare services in the area.
The forthcoming tower will occupy an impressive 216,000 square feet and will cater to the needs of patients with its 160 beds, including a specialized 12-bed observation unit. Additionally, the tower will feature two state-of-the-art operating rooms, while also offering increased space for emergency, imaging, cardiac catheterization, and surgery departments. This expansion will undoubtedly enhance the hospital’s ability to provide comprehensive and efficient medical care to its patients.
With the implementation of this project, Ascension Seton Williamson expects to create over 400 new positions to accommodate the additional capacity. This significant increase in staff will not only contribute to the local economy but also ensure that the medical tower operates smoothly and efficiently, delivering high-quality care to patients in need.
In addition to the construction of the new medical tower, the expansion plans include the development of an extra 34,000 square feet at the nearby Ascension Seton Williamson Medical Plaza at 301 Seton Parkway. This additional space will be dedicated to outpatient wound care, cardiac rehabilitation, and pediatric rehabilitation services. By expanding their outpatient services, Ascension Seton Williamson aims to provide a comprehensive range of care options to meet the diverse needs of the community.
To further support this ambitious expansion, Ascension Seton Williamson will launch a philanthropic effort this fall. This initiative will aim to rally community support and generate the necessary funds to ensure the success and sustained growth of the expanded services. Through this collaboration between the healthcare provider and the community, they hope to create a lasting impact on the healthcare landscape of Round Rock.
The construction of the new medical tower and the expansion of services at Ascension Seton Williamson Medical Plaza mark a significant milestone in the hospital’s commitment to providing exceptional healthcare to the community. With the addition of advanced facilities and the increase in staff, Ascension Seton Williamson is poised to meet the growing healthcare needs of Round Rock and its surrounding areas.
