Texas Health Alliance Celebrates First Birthday|
FORT WORTH, Texas — It has been one year since Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Alliance opened its doors to the community, and what a year it has been. Since opening day on September 19, 2012, Texas Health Alliance has cared for more than 24,000 patients in the emergency department, physicians on the medical staff performed 800 surgeries, and 700 families welcomed their bundles of joy within the hospital walls.
“Texas Health Alliance was designed and built for our unique area, and we want everyone in the Alliance area to know that we embrace the spirit of our community,” said Winjie Tang Miao, president of Texas Health Alliance. “In the past year we have partnered with organizations that make our community thrive — schools, small businesses, faith communities and other non-profits. We know that it takes working together as a team to increase the health and well-being in our community.”
Providing the employees of local companies like OmniTrax, FedEx and General Electric with business health services like on-site clinicians and other resources is but one example of the thriving energy that is a priority for Texas Health Alliance.
“When an organization has a healthy workforce, their company is more productive and that is good for business and the economy,” said Nikki Wesloh, director of rehabilitation and business health services at Texas Health Alliance. “These relationships truly make a difference.”
Texas Health Alliance is also investing in the future by working with the Northwest Independent School District to provide learning and volunteer opportunities for students interested in pursuing careers in the medical field.
The hospital offers state-of-the-art surgical suites and patient rooms that include individualized comforts like remote control room service and temperature adjustments, but that is not all that has made the first year a success. “Our employees truly set us apart at Texas Health Alliance,” said Kendra Slatton, R.N., M.S.N., C.D.E., chief nursing officer at Texas Health Alliance. “Our entire care team is dedicated to working together, providing excellent clinical care and encouraging overall well-being.” The hospital has added more than 200 new employees in the last year, and now employs approximately 425 full- and part-time employees.
In honor of Texas Health Alliance’s first birthday, the month of September is being dedicated to advancing our community’s health and well-being. To see the full schedule of events, visit TexasHealth.org/Alliance-Birthday.
