The $91 million project includes two stories with approximately 118,481 square feet of space. The expansion will add 36 additional patient care beds, increasing the facility’s bed count to 97. The contemporary design will align with the current hospital’s architecture and feature a new entrance off Frisco’s Main Street. Completion is expected in December 2022.
