I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
The Dallas-Fort Worth metro area is home to the largest numeric population growth in the United States, and Tarrant County added more residents than any county in North Texas between 2007 and 2008. (U.S. Census Bureau estimate, 2009)
In order to meet the healthcare needs of our fast-growing North Texas area, Texas Health Resources this month is opening a hospital in Flower Mound and an outpatient center in Burleson. We plan to break ground this fall on another full-service hospital in North Tarrant County, near the intersection of Interstate 35 and Golden Triangle Boulevard.
The Texas Health Burleson outpatient center will provide new healthcare options for residents in Burleson, Crowley, Joshua and surrounding areas. Services offered will include physician offices, women’s diagnostics, advanced imaging services, a fitness center, physical and sports therapy and cardiac rehabilitation.
Texas Health Flower Mound will be a full-service, acute-care hospital serving the healthcare needs of residents in Flower Mound, Lewisville, Coppell and surrounding areas. The hospital is located off FM 2499 near Windsor Drive.
We plan to break ground this fall on a new full-service hospital in North Tarrant County with hopes to begin offering services in late 2011. We are currently in the early planning and design stages of the hospital, which will include an emergency room, outpatient and surgical services, physician offices and acute-care inpatient beds.
For Texas Health Resources and its faith-based family of hospitals — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist, and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
