Dell Children’s Breaks Ground on New Pediatric Hospital in North Austin


Dell Children’s  held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new, state-of-the-art Dell Children’s Medical Center North in Williamson County. Totaling more than 187,000 square feet, the hospital will include 36 beds and emergency and trauma services, with two operating rooms, endoscopy and procedure rooms, sleep labs, and shelled space for future growth. Dell Children’s Medical Center North is expected to open in November 2022. 

Dell Children’s Medical Center North will have four levels for specialized pediatric care. 

  • First level: emergency department offering level III trauma care
  • 2nd Floor: two operating rooms
  • 3rd Floor: 36 beds and Ronald McDonald suite, with a lounge, kitchen and bedrooms
  • 4th Floor: dedicated to future growth and expansion for a capacity of 72 more beds

The north campus will also include a 60,000 square foot medical office building that will provide North Austin with outpatient subspecialty services closer to home.


Dell Children’s partnership with Dell Medical School at The University of Texas will continue to focus on ambitious growth to become a destination for all levels of pediatric care by strengthening existing specialties and developing additional pediatric complex care programs.
