ROUND ROCK, Texas - A new six-story medical tower is in the works in Round Rock for Ascension Seton Williamson as part of a $230 million expansion announced Tuesday.
The 216,000-square-foot tower will house 160 patient beds with a 12-bed observation unit, two operating rooms, and more space for emergency, imaging, cardiac cath and surgery departments.
More than 400 positions are expected to be added to staff this additional capacity.
