Texas Health Resources Developing Integrated Health Campuses|
Click to hear the taped broadcast.
I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
As Texas Health transforms from a hospital system to a health system, the hospital will continue to be the most prominent and visible manifestation of the work we do every day.
However, the work we do outside the hospital walls will become equally important as we strive to improve the health and overall well-being of people in the communities we serve.
One example of our progress is Texas Health Outpatient Center Willow Park. We broke ground on the center in October and expect it to open in the fourth quarter of 2014.
This is the second of what we call an “Integrated Health Campus.” Texas Health Burleson was the first of our Integrated Health Campuses, designed to bring primary care and other select specialties to growing communities. We expect to develop several other campuses around the D-FW area to provide quality health services convenient to where people live and work.
This model combines trusted hospitals, smaller community-focused Integrated Health Campuses and our extensive network of primary care and specialty physicians. All are focused on our mission to improve the health and well-being of the people in the communities we serve.
We’re proud to be a part of the Willow Park community and look forward to helping the people and communities of Parker County improve their health and well being.
For our faith-based health system — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
