Memorial Hermann Susan and Fayez Sarofim Pavilion

Houston, Texas

The Susan and Fayez Sarofim Pavilion, a new 17-story trauma tower, adds over one million square feet of state-of-the-art spaces for surgery, emergency care, intensive care, and administrative and support services. In addition to replacing 71 existing patient beds, the facility adds 160 new beds, 24 operating rooms, and 16 emergency room bays. A 335-seat café offers patients, families, and staff an attractive respite.

Seven shelled floors provide potential space for adding 264 beds and six operating rooms to accommodate future growth. An additional building will provide a 750-space parking garage and infrastructure capabilities to support the campus expansion.

The Sarofim Pavilion houses the Red Duke Trauma Institute at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, one of only two Level I trauma centers in Houston; the John. S. Dunn Burn Center, the only comprehensive burn center in the city; as well as other critical care services. The Life Flight 4-space helipad was relocated atop the new facility as well, providing a large space for Houston’s only hospital-based air medical service.

Enabling projects for the tower included a generator building housing six new 2500KW generators and several “pre-phase” projects needed to relocate services that would be demolished or moved for operational reasons such as the hyperbaric suite, clinical lab, the entire loading dock, and renovation of the ED.

Future work in the existing tower, HPI, will follow after the completion of the Susan and Fayez Sarofim Pavilion to include new work in the ED and renovation of 18 OR’s on Level 2 of HPI.
