Vaughn builds a diverse range of facilities to effectively serve the needs of healthcare institutions. We have built greenfield hospitals, ambulatory care centers, cancer treatment facilities, bed towers, clinics and medical office buildings, central plants, and parking garages. We have renovated emergency departments, operating rooms, intensive care units, patient rooms, and administrative/support areas. Our work on hospital campuses has ranged from new, ground-up facilities to evergreen contracts for minor repairs and renovations. We have an extensive, 25-year history of experience in the Texas Medical Center (TMC), one of the largest medical complexes in the world.

Academic/Clinical Building

The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSWMC) hired Vaughn to construct the first phase of its West Campus, as part of its 15-year master plan. To make way for the campus development, Vaughn demolished the 806,000 SF St. Paul’s Hospital using selective demolition and implosion.

Vaughn then constructed the 11-level, 300,000 SF academic/clinical building which features 50,000 SF of simulation space, operating rooms, specialty patient rooms, a clinical skills center, and robotics laboratories. The building includes shell space in which to centralize future ambulatory clinics. The project also included a 834-space, 425,500 SF parking garage and a 181-space surface parking lot adjacent to the facility.

The new facility provides the staff and students of UTSWMC with the latest technology and ample space to train the next generation of researchers and physicians to serve the Dallas community.
