Includes $60 Million Women’s Hospital, $15 Million Inpatient Rehab

Medical City Arlington (MCA) soon will begin a $60 million expansion and renovation to the existing Women’s Tower, part of a $100 million hospital improvement project. The enlarged tower will become Medical City Arlington Women’s Hospital and will have a total of five floors --- two more than the current Women’s Center.

Medical City Arlington Women’s Hospital will include a total of 70 post-partum, ante partum and gynecology beds, future expansion to 23 labor and delivery suites, and a total of 35 beds in the neo-natal intensive care unit. In addition to an expanded obstetric emergency department, MCA will enlarge its labor and delivery recovery area, enhancing its market-leading women’s care reputation. More than 4,300 babies are delivered annually at MCA.

A $15 million fifth-floor addition to the MCA acute care tower will become an Inpatient Rehab Unit. A $25 million emergency room and intensive care unit (ICU) expansion is already underway, and MCA has invested in a $5 million 3-D Biplane, leading edge technology which allows for 360-degree radiological imaging within steps of the emergency room. In May, the facility will initiate $3 million in operating room renovations, increasing the number of post-anesthesia care areas and adding space to two operating rooms. This project should be complete by late summer.

The combination of these projects represents more than $100 million dollars invested in the health and well-being of people in Arlington and surrounding communities. The new investment also will add a total of 98 additional licensed beds for the care a treatment of the rapidly growing area.

“The expansion and renovations are consistent with our vision to become the community-preferred care facility,” said CEO Winston Borland. “It will provide needed capacity as Medical City Arlington moves to a Level II trauma center and advances its tertiary capabilities.
