Primary care and urgent care facilities are already under construction and are set to open in the fall of 2019. A comprehensive outpatient specialty center and an outpatient surgery center will open in in the spring of 2020.
The inpatient hospital will open in 2022, and it will include a neonatal intensive care unit, a medical and surgical unit, a pediatric intensive care unit and an emergency department.
“Cook Children’s has made a promise to improve the health of every child in our six-county region and that means we have to continue to expand our reach to keep up with a rapidly growing area like we are seeing in Prosper and Denton County,” said Nancy Cychol, chief of Hospital Services for Cook Children’s, in a prepared statement.
The Prosper location will be the pediatric health care system’s fourth medical center campus. The other three campuses are located in Hurst, Plano and downtown Fort Worth, which is the flagship location.
"Our full intent is to offer leading edge technology and services that when combined with our integrated delivery model brings an outstanding patient and family experience," said Rick Merrill, president and chief executive officer of Cook Children's, in a prepared statement.
Children’s Health also announced Thursday that it is opening a new mixed-use medical campus on 72 acres in Prosper three miles from the Cook Children’s site.
The square footage and offerings of the campus are still in the initial planning stage, but officials with Children's Health said the anchor of the site will be pediatric health care services accompanied by various corporate, retail and hospitality businesses.
