Memorial Hermann Health System - Texas Medical Center Sarofim Pavilion Patient Tower & Hospital Expansion

Broaddus & Associates is providing Program Management Services on behalf of Memorial Hermann Health System for the breaking new ground program in the TMC in Houston, TX. MHHS serves as the teaching hospital for The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School, and is the largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas, serving the Houston community through 13 hospitals, a vast network of affiliated physicians, specialty programs, and ancillary services.

The $750M Program includes the construction of a new hospital facility, the integration and expansion of all trauma programs, and the relocation of clinical and surgical programs. The new Sarofim Pavilion consists of a 414-bed tower (228 beds shelled) topped by a new helipad with increased capacity for Memorial Hermann’s Life Flight program and sitting on a ‘podium’ which includes an expansion of the Emergency Department, Level I Trauma service and Surgical Services.  The project includes a new 829 space parking garage immediately adjacent to the tower as well enabling projects and backfill renovations. With this expansion, Memorial Hermann’s flagship hospital will grow by more than 1 million SF.

Memorial Hermann operates one of only two certified Level I Trauma Centers in the greater Houston area, including 24/7 emergency and trauma care and the Memorial Hermann Life Flight air ambulance service. These resources will be fully functional for the duration of the project.

Broaddus & Associates is serving as a key member of the Project Delivery Team, and is actively involved in all aspects of planning, procurement, design, construction, commissioning and administration of the Master Facility Plan Project. This initiative is managed by a full-time staff that provides on-site coordination and overall leadership. A few notable aspects of our service are listed below.

Schedule Controls. As a part of the hospital expansion, we have implemented an Earned Schedule Analysis protocol on a monthly basis to realistically and precisely determine the status of this extremely complex project. By analyzing the details and trending of each scheduling activity, this process flushes out improper logic and in correct assumptions. A major executive summary tool shows S-curves for 3 major areas: early finish, late finish, and actual progress. This tool allows the entire project team to know the exact status of the schedule, and work collaboratively to implement solutions to get things back on track.

In addition, this project was awarded the 2021 Landmark Award for Top Medical Project by the Houston Business Journal. To read more about this recognition, please click here.
