What began as an emergency room in 2011 has grown to become the three-story, 155,000 square foot full-service Medical City Alliance at 3101 North Tarrant Parkway in Fort Worth. The hospital is scheduled to see its first patients Feb 19.
“The ER at Alliance has served more than 50,000 of your friends, family, and neighbors since it opened in November 2011,” Medical City Alliance CEO Glenn Wallace said at the community open house Feb 14, “And as your community continues to grow and thrive, Medical City Alliance is committed to growing along with you.”
Wallace shared that the decision was made to expand the hospital even prior to opening. The hospital will open with 55 beds, up from the original 30 beds planned to serve residents of north Fort Worth, Justin, Saginaw, Haslet, Trophy Club, Keller and the entire Alliance Corridor.
What sets the $90 million facility apart is that while it has the convenience of a community hospital, it offers the resources, technology and highly skilled physicians and nurses you would expect to find a larger urban hospital. “We are proud to be one of the newest members of the Medical City Healthcare family,” said Wallace, “That means our patients have access to the broader resources of Medical City Healthcare including a comprehensive stroke care network, an advanced cardiovascular network, and nationally-recognized cancer services to name a few.”
Medical City Alliance will offer an array of medical and surgical services including maternity, gynecologic, cardiovascular, imaging, general surgery, emergency medicine and intensive care. Its operating rooms feature some of the latest technology, including robot-assisted surgery suites. The hospital will have approximately 200 credentialed doctors on the medical staff and employ 300 staff members, including nurses.
“I am proud to serve as chief of staff for Medical City Alliance, not only because of the beautiful facility and the wonderful professionals employed here, but also because of the advanced medical technology,” said Angela Cope, MD, Chief of Staff for Medical City Alliance. “This is technology you would typically only see in larger, urban hospital settings. Medical City Alliance offers the latest in medical technology, but in a setting that is still part of the local community.”
In addition to talent and technology, the hospital’s design and décor are also designed to create a healing environment for patients and visitors. As guests enter Medical City Alliance, they will be met by a modern, soothing, attractive décor and atmosphere. Large windows provide natural light in all patient rooms and throughout the facility. Patient rooms are expansive – with plenty of room for family and caregivers. The hospital encourages family involvement to promote healing, with open visitation throughout the hospital. Visitation is even encouraged in the ICU, a department that typically restricts visiting hours in other hospitals.
