The project was a complete transformation of a 400,000 SF existing downtown hospital originally constructed in 1959, into a fully functional, state-of-the-art children’s hospital. Bartlett Cocke General Contractors touched every piece of this facility, upgrading the existing MEP and technology infrastructure, as well as refurbishing all visible surfaces, creating a healing environment that is child-friendly and incites playfulness. The improved CHRISTUS Children’s Hospital inspires hope for all of the young patients and their families and enables the medical professionals to provide optimal care. This contemporary hospital is an incredible asset to the south Texas region and will now be able to help protect future generations.

The project consisted of multi-phased additions and renovations including:

-Interior finishes include head wall, solid surface millwork tops in patient rooms and nurse station areas, Nora resilient flooring and stone slate tile flooring
-10,000 SF addition
-Total bed count: 195
-Exterior façade work including complete window replacement and metal panel cladding with colored channel glass installed on concrete eyebrows
-Site work, landscape and hardscape
-All new patient wings, imagining suite (1.5T MRI, 3T MRI, CT Scanner, ultrasound, & X-ray), Emergency Department, surgical suites, Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT), Hematology/Oncology (HEM/ONC), Nuclear Medicine, Pediatric Intensive Care (PICU), Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Labor/Delivery/Recovery (LDR), Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), C-Section Surgical, Pediatric & Internal Medicine Center (PIMC), Angiography, Polysomnogrophy Lab (Sleep lab) & Cardiac Catheterization Lab (Cath Lab)


The renovation and new lobby addition had to be coordinated around maintaining perpetual hospital service. This resulted in more than 20 phases of construction! Phasing took into account swing and support spaces for areas renovated and was planned well in advance, so health, chapel, administration, and café services were able to remain fully functional. Phasing also incorporated census spaces as they relate to flu/cold seasons and births. Construction start and completion were based on the Owner’s transition into the new space and out of the “old” space to be renovated.

The focus of construction during the entirety of this project was safety and infection control. Careful consideration and planning were implemented to minimize the impact of construction on ongoing hospital operations, noise and dust control, and safeguard indoor air quality. Every effort was made not to disrupt recovery or impede communications between the patients and healthcare professionals.

This complex project is a tremendous source of pride for all of us at Bartlett Cocke General Contractors and truly represents our desire to “Build Better Lives.” Every ounce of energy, thought, and time that was put into this endeavor was absolutely worth it.
