Plaza Medical Center Now Medical City Fort Worth; Construction On $64 Million Tower To Begin In May
Signs inside and outside Plaza Medical Center of Fort Worth are transitioning to the new name of Medical City Fort Worth. The renaming is part of a unifying name change for Medical City Healthcare’s 13 North Texas hospitals and seven off-campus hospital. In addition, ER at Burleson will now be known as Medical City ER Burleson, a department of Medical City Fort Worth.
