Methodist West Houston Hospital

Deliver in record time no matter how complex the project

That's the challenge facing Beaubois as part of the construction team for Phase 1 of the Methodist West Houston Hospital, a top-flight multidisciplinary institution.

The new 6-storey building will house a breast cancer centre, cardiology, oncology, obstetrics, radiation therapy, neurology and robotic surgery departments, an imaging centre, emergency department, 15 operating theatres and 193 beds. It will have a heliport on the roof, plenty of parking spaces and will require an investment of $300M.

In the one-year time span normally allotted for installation alone, Beaubois will design, fabricate and install all of its products - a truly amazing feat that involves fitting up the nurses' stations and the headboards, caissons, top and bottom cupboards, vanities and counters in each of the hospital rooms. In a number of cases, Beaubois will integrate other materials, equipment and medical gases.

Adding to the complexity of the mandate is the design-build nature of the project which means that it is constantly evolving as the architects provide the details as the work progresses. This necessitates flexibility and rigorous coordination on the part of everyone involved.
Its new facilities will enable the Methodist West Houston Hospital to treat more than 30,000 patients a year. "We want to be able to bring the greatest health-care services to the west Houston market," said Wayne Voss, vice president of community operations and development for the Methodist Hospital System, adding that "the hospital will be easily able to accommodate rising future needs and an enlargement."


The Methodist Hospital System has undertaken a huge billion-dollar development project entailing expansion or construction in the Houston area. In addition to the future West Methodist Hospital, Beaubois is involved in the construction of the Methodist Hospital in the same city and is applying its expertise to the neighboring West Campus of the Texas Children's Hospital. A trio that will eloquently testify to the exceptional talents of the people at Beaubois.
