Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth has completed its new surgical recovery and operating room expansion project, the hospital announced Monday. The expansion is the centerpiece of its $44 million renovation project, allowing the hospital to accommodate twice the surgical volume that it has previously been able to handle.
“This expansion signifies the commitment we’ve made to continuously offer our patients excellence in healthcare in a closer-to-home setting,” said Texas Health Southwest president Joseph DeLeon.
This phase of construction included a new sterile processing department, 10 additional pre-op rooms, 30 new recovery beds, and eight 680-square-feet, newly designed operating rooms. The new operating rooms feature stainless steel walls along with advanced technology such as mounted cameras that will assist surgeons in offering educational opportunities to surgical fellows and the community.
Also included in this construction phase is a 24-bed inpatient unit that was built in anticipation of increased volume in the coming years.
