The hospital will include neonatal intensive care, pediatric intensive care, operating rooms, epilepsy monitoring, an emergency center, sleep center, acute care, diagnostic imaging, a fetal center for advanced fetal interventions and fetal surgery with a special high-risk delivery unit and an on-site Texas Children's Urgent Care location.

The facility will also feature a 170,000-square-foot outpatient building that will connect patients and family to Texas Children's subspecialties, including cardiology, oncology, neurology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, dialysis and more.
