The new four-story, 64-bed full-service hospital and adjacent Medical Office Building is Texas Heath’s response to the growing healthcare needs of North Tarrant County and surrounding communities. The two-story medical office building, developed and owned by Cambridge, integrates into the adjacent hospital facility design providing convenient access to services in one location.

Level One includes Emergency, Imaging, Surgery, Central Sterile, Pre-Op/Recovery, Materials Management and Environmental Services, Pharmacy, Chapel and Prep Kitchen. A separate Women’s Services Entry is also designed into the plan. In addition to housing Administration Offices, Level Two accommodates a Serving Kitchen, Dining Area, Physician’s Lounge and shell space for a future 24-bed Medical/Surgical Unit expansion.

Level Three includes a 24-bed Medical/Surgical Unit and 12-unit Critical Care Unit, with accommodation for future expansion to a 24-unit Critical Care Unit. Level Four contains the Women’s Services Center with LDR’s, Post-Partum, Well Baby Nursery and NICU.

The project is designed to accommodate two additional floors vertically and a third bed tower has been planned for future expansion during the master plan. At full capacity, the hospital will be approximately 240 beds.

Structured as an Integrated Project Delivery method, the team consists of Texas Health Resources (Owner), Perkins+Will (Architect) and Beck (General Contractor).  The project is the first hospital in the nation to be delivered under the multi-party, integrated delivery C191 AIA Contract.  Key elements of this delivery method include intense team collaboration, focus on long-term value, design and construction innovation, early inclusion of major trades and prefabrication.
