Texas Health Resources last week announced it will build a new $95 million hospital to serve residents in southern Tarrant County.
The six-story Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South will be immediately west of the system’s current location off Interstate 35W in Burleson. The 228,300 square-foot space will have a glass curtain exterior and connect with the current facility on its first floor. The groundbreaking was earlier this month. Construction should wrap by the summer of 2016.
“This new hospital will support our community’s growth, our patients’ needs and advances in medical technology. We believe it is an important step in enhancing our patients’ experience with us and continuing to deliver the highest level of personalized care,” said Ken Finch, president and CEO of Texas Health Huguley Hospital.
The existing facility will house the intensive care unit, cardiovascular critical care, the emergency department, inpatient and outpatient behavior health services, and a heart catheterization lab. Per the hospital, the list below is what patients will find in the new location:
- private patient rooms more than double the size of the current rooms
- wireless technology and individual climate controls in each patient room
- new Women’s Services Department
- new lobby and registration area
- outpatient radiology center
- gift shop
- high energy efficiency
- quiet acoustics
- landscaped courtyard
- infrastructure for new medical technology installed in ceiling.
