Well Wishes for Third Patient Tower at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands
Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center leadership gathered for an informal ceremony to commemorate the pouring of the concrete foundation for the campus’ new 332,510-square-foot, eight-floor South Tower. The third patient tower is the centerpiece of a major campus expansion and renovation set to open in early 2022.
As the concrete was poured, the team threw coins down into the foundation so that they would be embedded into the project for good luck and prosperity as the construction continues.
