Texas Health Huguley will soon be able to care for even more people thanks to a $73 million expansion project that will add more than 108,000 square feet to the hospital’s footprint.
This expansion will significantly increase the size of the hospital’s emergency department by adding a new four-story patient tower for enhanced intensive care, cardiac, surgical, and other services.
“This is exactly what our community needs,” said Penny Johnson, president and CEO of Texas Health Huguley and the Southwest Region of AdventHealth. “We’ve seen tremendous growth in the number of families moving south of Fort Worth. This expansion is another milestone in our longstanding commitment to provide the highest-quality health care in South Tarrant and Johnson County, so residents do not need to travel outside of our community for care.”
Texas Health Huguley has seen an increase in the number of patients needing emergency care. This expansion will increase capacity and the design will allow for patients to be cared for faster, improving the experience and efficiency of care in the emergency department. Texas Health Huguley is driven by its mission to provide Christ-centered care and continuously advance the level of services provided to the community.
Construction is expected to begin in early 2022 with a projected completion date of 2023. Continuing a long-term partnership, the architect and contractor for the project will be The Beck Group.
