By Camelia Bulea, Associate Editor
Victory Healthcare recently announced it would build a hospital in Fort Worth, at the corner of South Main Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Sitting on a 6.5-acre site, the $51 million medical center will include an 85,000-square-foot medical facility and 50,000-square-foot medical office building.
Victory Medical Center Fort Worth is planned to include 25 patient beds, including five suites with private family quarters, and four state-of-the-art intensive care rooms, eight operating rooms and four special procedure rooms.
According to an official statement, The Woodlands-based Victory Healthcare will have an important role in the revitalization of South Main, serving as anchor in the commercial development effort. “We take seriously the honor of being part of the rebirth of South Main, and it will be reflected throughout the design of the building,” said CEO Robert Helms Jr.
The architect designed the facility to reflect Fort Worth’s heritage, integrating a replica of the St. Joseph’s Hospital tower in the façade while the entire design of the facility features architectural elements typical of Fort Worth’s architecture from the 1910s.
The new Fort Worth hospital will provide a superior level of personalized care, including specialty procedures such as spinal and orthopedic surgery in addition to general surgery; gynecology; urology; bariatrics; and ear, nose and throat procedures, as well as pain management. Scheduled to open in May 2014, the hospital will employ 140 people, not counting those that will work in the medical office building, reports the Dallas Business Journal.
Linbeck Construction Corp. is the facility’s general contractor.
