Houston Methodist Centennial Tower Media Kit
Our state-of-the-art hospital tower is slated to open in 2027
New Tower Joins Walter Tower
Replacing Houston Methodist’s Oldest Facilities
When completed, Centennial Tower will:
- House nearly 400 patient beds, including 175 new beds and 207 beds to replace those currently in Houston Methodist’s Main building, which ultimately will be demolished along with West Pavilion.
- Replace existing space for transplant medicine, intermediate care and surgical intensive care.
- Replace seven operating rooms with the latest technology and add two additional operating room suites and enhanced radiology services.
Expanded Emergency Department
With 54 beds and additional suites, the new ED will be nearly double in size. In addition, the larger, more convenient emergency entrance at John Freeman Boulevard and Bertner Avenue will include pedestrian and ambulance drop-off sites, ambulance bays and easy in-and-out access.
Outdoor Space for Relaxation
Centennial Tower’s 14th floor will feature an outdoor rooftop garden complete with trees and landscaping to provide patients, visitors and staff with an outdoor respite in the heart of the Texas Medical Center.
