Ben Taub Hospital
A $70 million expansion project will increase the number of operating rooms at Harris Health System’s Ben Taub Hospital from 11 to 18. Construction of the new operating rooms – the first in almost 30 years – began the summer of 2015 and will take several years to complete.
Harris Health expects to use six of the new rooms and six of the existing ones. One of the new operating rooms will be used only for trauma cases. The new operating rooms are needed to maintain the hospital’s Level 1 trauma center status and will be bigger, better and fully up to code.
Ben Taub Hospital is a Level 1 trauma center, one of only three in Southeast Texas. The hospital is located in Houston, Texas within the Texas Medical Center.
