Dallas, TX — Medical City Heart Hospital and Medical City Spine Hospital together celebrated one-year of service to North Texas today, amidst construction equipment and capital expansion projects.
Since the October 8, 2019 grand opening, both hospitals have reached important milestones:
- 21 total heart transplants
- More than 800 spine surgeries
- The addition of four operating rooms: two spine operating rooms, one electrophysiology operating room, one advanced hybrid operating room
Medical City Dallas recently began construction on the new Medical City Orthopedic and Spine Surgery Center and medical office building – set to open in late 2021. The expansion project, set adjacent to Medical City Spine Hospital off North Central Expressway and Forest Lane, includes four stories, approximately 107,000 square feet and features covered parking with direct access to the building.
The nearly 20,000 square foot ambulatory surgery center on the ground floor will specialize in orthopedic, spine and pain management procedures. It will include four leading edge operating rooms and two dedicated procedure rooms for pain management specialists. Private recovery rooms for overnight stays will also be available.
The medical office building, owned and operated by Healthcare Trust of America, Inc., and leased by Medical City Healthcare, will offer comfortable and adaptable office space for additional high-level specialists to meet the healthcare needs of the growing Dallas community.
“This one-year anniversary is special because of the tremendous dedication and commitment to safety our colleagues have shown during these extremely challenging times,” says Chris Mowan, CEO of Medical City Dallas. “Our newest capital expansion project advances our mission to the care and improvement of human life through leading edge technology, equipment and surgical suites, in order for our expert physicians to provide North Texans the excellent and compassionate surgical care for which we are known.”
