Cook Children’s is enlarging its presence in Fort Worth with a new facility location in the quickly-growing area near the intersection of I-20 and I-30 west of Fort Worth. The new location will include urgent care, primary and specialty care and orthopedic services.

The first phase of building includes a two-story, 40,000 square foot building housing primary care and urgent care on the first floor and specialty and orthopedic services on the second. The facility has plans to connect patients with their doctors via a private video conferencing system, preserve the surrounding landscape, and build adaptive play areas. It is expected to open in the fall of 2019, is being designed by HKS, and built by Linbeck Fort Worth.

“Our goal is for North Texas to be one of the healthiest regions in the country for kids to grow up,” said Rick Merrill, president and CEO of Cook Children’s via release. “We strive to make quality pediatric care convenient to families in their communities and are extremely excited to grow our footprint in west Fort Worth and Parker County. The new Cook Children’s facility going in near the Walsh development will be able to flex and expand as that region of Fort Worth continues to grow.”
