This week officials broke ground for the Driscoll Children’s Hospital Rio Grande Valley.
The new Children’s Hospital will be located on the campus of DHR Health and will include neonatal intensive care unite, acute inpatient and outpatient surgery, and a child life program.
“The children of this market absolutely deserve a standalone children’s hospital,” Driscoll System President and CEO Eric Hamon said. “There’s going to be a standalone emergency room. There’s going to be rehabilitation services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy.”
Construction will begin later this year and an official opening is expected for 2022.
