Medical City Arlington, which recently changed its name from Medical Center Arlington, has further progressed its transition by replacing hospital signs inside and outside its facility. The renaming is part of a unifying name change for Medical City Healthcare’s 13 North Texas hospitals and seven off-campus hospital emergency rooms implemented on November 18, 2016.
The name change coincides with a $1.5 billion investment initiative Medical City Healthcare system has established over three years. As part of the capital investment, Medical City Arlington is undergoing a $100 million renovation that includes a $15 million inpatient rehab unit, a $25 million emergency room expansion and intensive care unit, and a $60 million expansion and renovation to the existing women’s tower, which will become Medical City Arlington’s women’s hospital.
The new women’s hospital at Medical City Arlington will include a total of 70 beds, 23 labor and delivery suites, and 35 beds in the neonatal intensive care unit. Medical City Arlington will also enlarge its labor and delivery recovery area as part of the expansion.
Currently, all Medical City Healthcare online and social media accounts have the new name.
Winston Borland, CEO of Medical City Arlington, said Medical City has a trusted name given its reputation for providing quality healthcare in North Texas.
“For years we have been a corporate family connected under Hospital Corp. of America,” Borland said. “Now, the public and our patients will be able to immediately identify our expansive and unified system of care in their own communities.”
