Methodist Celina Medical Center will feature 30 medical-surgical beds, 10 post-partum beds, Eight intensive care unit beds, 12 emergency department beds, three operating rooms, including a daVinci surgical robot, and shell space for an additional operating room.
The hospital will also include a professional office building and shell space for future expansion.
