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 ERs that was announced on Nov. 18, 2016.
In addition, ER at Burleson will now be known as Medical City ER Burleson, a department of Medical City Fort Worth.
“Medical City is a trusted name with an immediately recognizable reputation for quality healthcare,” says Clay Franklin, CEO of Medical City Fort Worth. “For years we have operated as a family of hospitals in North Texas under Hospital Corporation of America (HCA). Now, the public and our patients will be able to immediately identify our expansive and unified system of care in their own communities.”
Digital assets, including web pages, social media sites and employee email addresses already reflect the new name.
The unifying name change coincides with a major capital investment initiative of more than $1.5 billion spent or committed across the Medical City Healthcare system over three years.
Medical City Fort Worth is undergoing more than $100 million in expansion and improvement projects, some of which were completed in 2016. Construction is expected to begin in May 2017 on a new, $64 million, three-story patient tower, including a new Emergency Department, a 28-bed intensive care unit and a rooftop helipad. Other improvement projects include:
• Additional neuro-interventional radiology lab ($2.3 million)
• New cardiac electrophysiology lab ($2.3 million)
• New inpatient rehabilitation unit ($3.6 million)
• Two Da Vinci Xi© robotic systems ($6.75 million)
• Upgrades/Updates for equipment, facilities and programs: Operating room, MRI suite, endoscopy, anesthesia machines, ICU beds and monitors, new comprehensive liver program, and more.
