Patients, families, friends and staff can enjoy the warm, welcoming, and beautifully redesigned lobby of the new Women’s Hospital, the destination hospital exclusively for women at Medical City Arlington. The lobby and OB emergency department have both opened in advance of completion of the Women’s Hospital, which is set to open in the spring 2019.
Scheduled patients, family, friends and OB emergency department patients can now use the Women’s Hospital Entrance instead of the main hospital entrance or the hospital’s emergency room.
The $60 million Women’s Hospital project is part of Medical City Healthcare’s major capital investment initiative of more than $1.7 billion spent or committed over five years.
Once complete, the facility will include:
- More than 125 thousand square feet of new and renovated space
- 2 new floors
- 23 modern labor and delivery rooms
- 3 modern C-section operating rooms
- 4 women’s VIP suites
- 16 antepartum rooms
- 33 postpartum rooms
- 18 gynecology/surgery rooms
- 36 Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit beds
- 40 newborn nursery beds
Medical City Arlington currently delivers more than 4,200 babies each year. With increased capacity in the new Women’s Hospital, the facility will be able to accommodate more than 5,800 births annually.
