ROUND ROCK, Texas (AP) — Scott & White Healthcare has completed a $40 million, 58,000-square-foot expansion at its Round Rock campus.
Officials said Monday that the expansion increases the size of Scott & White Healthcare-Round Rock by one-fourth, to 102 beds. The expansion at the nearly 5-year-old hospital also includes 26 new intensive care and general medical/surgical beds.
The surgery area has nearly doubled to nine rooms, and the emergency department has grown from 11 to 19 beds.

In the future, officials plan to add another patient bed tower and medical office building.
