Medical City Arlington held a groundbreaking ceremony Monday to mark the start of construction on its women’s hospital. The women’s hospital is a $60 million project and part of an ongoing facility-wide expansion and renovation investment.

The women’s hospital will span more than 125,000 square feet of new and renovated space. The two-floor hospital will also add 55 beds to the current existing women’s center at Medical City Arlington’s campus.

When the expansion is complete, it will include the following:
• 19 updated labor and delivery rooms
• Three C-section operating rooms
• Three suites
• 14 antepartum/gynecology surgery rooms
• 53 postpartum rooms
• 36 Level III neonatal intensive care unit beds
• 35 nursery beds

Medical City Arlington CEO Keith Zimmerman said during Monday’s ceremony: “This project reinforces our commitment to the community as a comprehensive resource, providing specialized and leading edge care and treatment at every stage of a woman’s life, including motherhood.

“This is a milestone as the number one hospital of choice for patients and physicians in our community,” he said.

Construction of the two floors is expected to be completed by summer 2019.
