I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
Texas Health Resources is privileged to welcome Huguley Memorial Medical Center in south Fort Worth to the Texas Health family. Texas Health and Adventist Health System, the parent company of Huguley Memorial Medical Center, formed a joint venture company that owns and manages the hospital.
This partnership allows our two organizations to better serve the people of south Tarrant County, Johnson County and Ellis County. Both Texas Health and Adventist Health System have strong foundations as faith-based, non-profit health systems that are dedicated to improving health in the communities we serve. Given today’s challenging health care environment, it makes sense for us to look for opportunities to collaborate with other health systems to improve the health of our communities.
By joining together, Texas Health and Huguley will improve coordination of care delivery along the south I-35W corridor. This new partnership will be a great benefit to our communities, physicians, employees and patients as we combine resources and talents to reach more people in need. We are coordinating across the entire continuum of care — from wellness, prevention and primary care through acute care in the hospital and post-acute care — to improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve.
We’re proud to welcome the people of Huguley Memorial Medical Center to our family.
For our faith-based health system — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
