Texas Children's Hospital topped out the hospital's new West Campus in Houston. When completed, the facility, which is being built by Houston-based Tellepsen, will give residents in West Houston access to a pediatric hospital in their community.

Tellepsen began construction of the Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus last year on a 55-acre tract.

The hospital will include more than 500,000 sq ft of ambulatory, diagnostic, office and inpatient/outpatient facility space, along with a central utility plant. The outpatient clinic building and inpatient facility are scheduled to open in late 2010.

Tellepsen is also constructing the Texas Children’s Hospital Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute, a multi-disciplinary pediatric neurological research center, in Houston’s Texas Medical Center.
