Texas Children’s Hospital announced Wednesday morning it is contemplating to expand its expert pediatric and maternal care in Austin “to more conveniently serve the families of Central Texas” after purchasing two new lots of land, according to a news release.

The new lots of land are the Presidio property, located at the corner of Lake Creek Parkway at SH 45 North in Northwest Austin, and the Estancia property, located at the corner of Puryear Road at I-35 in South Austin.

There are no confirmed plans on what the new land will be used for, according to the news release.
