Join the Rice Design Alliance for a hard hat tour of the Texas Children’s Hospital Legacy Tower, hosted by RDA Board Members Jill Pearsall, Assistant Vice President of Texas Children’s Hospital, and Saied Alavi, Vice President of Operations, Marek Brothers Systems. Participants will tour the soon-to-be-opened hospital with the management, construction, and design team that made this landmark project happen. The Legacy Tower is a 19-story vertical expansion to an existing six-story base building. The Tower will house 126 beds for pediatric and cardiovascular intensive care and six new operating rooms with the latest technology to complement the hospital’s existing 19 ORs.
It will also be the new home of Texas Children’s Heart Center, including the outpatient clinic, four cardiovascular ORs, four catheterization labs, and 42 acute care beds. This vertical expansion will help reinvest in the programs needed to provide the highest level of care to the most critically ill patients. RDA corporate members FKP, Walter P. Moore, WS Bellows, Humphrey and Marek are among the project team for the Legacy Tower.
