Texas Health Breaks Ground on Willow Park Integrated Health Campus|
WILLOW PARK, Texas — Texas Health Resources, the largest employer in North Texas and one of the country’s largest non-profit health systems, broke ground today on an 8-acre outpatient center in Willow Park.
Texas Health Outpatient Center Willow Park will feature a freestanding emergency department, fitness center and 3-story medical office building. Services will include cardiac rehabilitation, behavioral health, physical therapy, laboratory services, advanced imaging, and a chronic disease management program. The outpatient center will be the first part of an integrated health campus that will grow, with plans for a surgery center and expansion of space for more physicians and medical services.
Texas Health Willow Park, scheduled to open its doors in the 4th quarter of 2014, will be Texas Health’s first facility in Parker County.
“We’re proud to be a part of the Willow Park community and look forward to serving residents here for years to come,” said Dr. Jeffrey Canose, executive vice president for Texas Health and the system’s Southwest Zone operations leader. “Texas Health Willow Park will not only provide emergency care and other basic health services, it will be an integrated health campus that promotes well-being and population health.”
Texas Health Willow Park, located at Interstate 20 and Crown Pointe Boulevard, will open as a 60,000-square-foot outpatient center. The campus’s medical offices are expected to have numerous types of physicians, possibly including internists, orthopedists, cardiologists and OB/GYNs. The $20-million project is expected to also attract neurologists, urologists, and urogynecologists.
“Texas Health provides care to more patients in the southwest region of North Texas than any other health care provider by offering high-level services to communities throughout the area,” said Dr. Harold Berenzweig, executive vice president for Texas Health and the system’s Southwest Zone clinical leader. “Today, we’re breaking ground on a facility that will bring primary care and other select specialties to Willow Park and surrounding Parker County communities, making it more convenient for residents to get quality care close to home.”
Willow Park, located about 20 miles west of Fort Worth, is a fast-growing Parker County city of more than 4,000 residents. Texas Health Willow Park will also serve other nearby communities, including Weatherford, Aledo, Hudson Oaks and Annetta. Currently, the closest hospital to Willow Park is almost 10 miles away.
The closest Texas Health facility is 15 miles away.
“We’re excited that Texas Health is coming to Willow Park,” said Richard Neverdousky, Willow Park mayor. “This facility is going to be a beautiful, state-of-the-art campus ready to serve local residents and grow as our community grows.”
