I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford has been designated as a Level III Trauma Facility by the Texas Department of State Health Services. The hospital is the first in Northeast Tarrant County to attain the designation.
Texas Health HEB is the primary hospital serving the Mid-Cities. Earning this designation is another example of the hospital’s commitment to strengthen the Mid-Cities area and make Hurst, Euless, Bedford attractive communities for families and employers. Texas Health is committed to improving access to critical health care services for this vital crossroads at the center of the DFW Metroplex.
The Level III trauma center designation demonstrates the hospital’s ability to meet a high level of 24-hour trauma emergency, operative and critical care services.
The hospital has also renovated and expanded its Emergency Department. When someone needs emergency care, it can be a very stressful time. Our goal is to improve the experience for patients and their families by providing more convenient access to the Emergency Department and a more comfortable environment.
By investing in improved access to higher levels of emergency care, Texas Health HEB is fulfilling our mission to improve the health of the people of Hurst-Euless-Bedford.
For our faith-based health system — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
