It took two years to build Memorial Hermann Cypress. In order to accommodate future growth, the master plan also includes the capacity to nearly double the number of inpatient beds to 145 in the current patient bed tower, as well as the construction of a life flight helipad. It also allows for two additional patient bed towers and two more medical plazas.
