Baylor Surgical Hospital at Fort Worth Announces New Facility for Fort Worth Residents

New Facility to Break Ground in Early 2013

DALLAS, October 29, 2012 – Baylor Surgical Hospital at Fort Worth today announced the purchase of 5.3 acres of land with plans to construct a new replacement hospital to be located on Park Place Avenue in Fort Worth, Texas.  The new facility will replace its current facility, located at 750 12th  Avenue in Fort Worth. 

The three-story, 77,000-square-foot, acute care replacement hospital is expected to break ground in May 2013 with an estimated completion in August 2014.

Jones Lang LaSalle DFW Market President Paul Whitman, Managing Director Todd Burnette and Vice President Ryan Matthews negotiated the land purchase on behalf of Baylor Surgical Hospital at Fort Worth.  The firm’s Senior Vice President Jonathan Vidaurri will manage the construction project.  The architect on the project is PageSoutherlandPage.

Baylor Surgical Hospital at Fort Worth is a joint venture with the Baylor Health Care System, United Surgical Partners International and local physicians, who since 1998 have provided quality, patient-centered care. The replacement facility will enhance the broad range of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures, specializing in orthopedic, spine, pain management, urology, general, plastic, and ear, nose and throat surgery. Additionally, the advanced technology will improve healthcare professionals’, increase patient safety and ultimately improve the quality of care provided.

“The project marks the beginning of a new chapter for our hospital system,” said CEO of Baylor Surgical Hospital at Fort Worth, Roger Rhodes.  “Healthcare is rapidly changing and our goal as an industry leader is to remain on the cutting edge of service for our patients, doctors and community.”

The new facility features 30 inpatient beds, 14 operating rooms, a 24-hour emergency room for minor emergencies, an imaging suite equipped with digital X-ray, CT scanner and MRI, convenient parking, wireless Internet access, flat screen monitors in each patient room and an uncommon commitment to patient safety and satisfaction.
