Quick -- Hospital or Hotel?

OK, it's a hospital -- the "new state-of-the-art University Hospital at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas" that the UT System Board of Regents agreed to fund to the tune of $800 million. The 12-story, 424-bed facility will open in 2015 on Harry Hines Boulevard at Record Crossing Road and replace St. Paul. Sounds nice too: "Each patient room will include a dedicated seating area for families and visitors, refrigerators, bedside and dimmer controls for lighting, multimedia options, and patient Internet access." I only hope I can hold on till 2015.
