Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South broke ground on a new $95 million building to be located west of the current facility in Burleson, Texas.
The new six-story patient tower will be 228,300 square feet and have a glass curtain exterior. Features of the new facility will include private patient rooms more than double the size of the current rooms, wireless technology and individual climate controls in each patient room, a new Women’s Services Department, new lobby and registration area, and outpatient radiology center.
The existing hospital will continue to house ICU, cardiovascular critical care, the emergency department and heart catheterization lab, as well as the inpatient and outpatient behavioral health center. Once the new facility opens, the existing patient tower will have space to expand current or future service lines.
The project is partnership between Texas Health Resources and Adventist Health System. In May 2012, Texas Health Resources and Adventist Health System, the original parent company of Huguley Memorial Medical Center, formed a joint venture company that owns and manages the hospital. The facility name was changed to Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South.
