$60 million facility offers leading edge care, healing environment

Medical City Arlington will commemorate the official grand opening of its new $60 million Medical City Women’s Hospital Arlington Monday, April 8. Two events will offer attendees the opportunity to tour the recently completed facility, designed to be the destination of choice for women’s services in Arlington, Mansfield, Grand Prairie and surrounding communities.

“Medical City Women’s Hospital Arlington is where healthcare excellence meets elegance,” said Medical City Arlington CEO Keith Zimmerman. “This specialized Women’s Hospital provides the full continuum of high-level women’s healthcare, from childbirth to gynecology surgery, including access to specialists conveniently located on campus. Our mission is to help women at every stage of life.”

The dedicated Women’s Hospital adds two floors, more than 125,000 square feet of new and renovated space and 55 beds to the existing building. A multi-disciplinary team of physicians and specially trained staff provide leading-edge treatment in a peaceful environment for women at all stages of life, including high-risk pregnancies and deliveries.

Facilities include:

  • A dedicated postpartum floor with 34 private patient rooms
  • 4 spacious women's premier postpartum suites
  • 33 women’s services medical/surgical rooms
  • 23 modern labor and delivery rooms
  • 3 C-section operating rooms
  • 35 Level III neonatal intensive care (NICU) beds, including 15 private NICU rooms
  • 2 dedicated family overnight stay rooms for NICU patient family members

Medical City Arlington has cared for the unique needs of women, including those with high-risk pregnancies and deliveries, for more than 40 years. The hospital delivers more than 4,300 babies each year, and expects to deliver more than 5,800 babies annually in the new Women’s Hospital.

Opening of Medical City Women’s Hospital Arlington coincides with a major capital investment initiative of more than $1.7 billion spent or committed over five years across the Medical City Healthcare system. Investments include expansion and improvements to existing hospitals, new services such as burn and trauma care, upgraded technologies and the opening of new facilities such as a Heart Hospital and a Spine Hospital in Dallas.

Community members are invited to celebrate the grand opening at a free and fun “Sip & See” on April 8, 5:30-7 p.m. Event attendees can tour the women’s services facilities, enjoy light bites and sips, check out the latest summer trends in maternity fashions presented by celebrity stylist Laurie Graham, meet OB-GYN physicians, and even discover the healing properties of essential oils for moms and babies. Information will be available about breastfeeding support and childbirth classes. Community members may RSVP for the Sip & See at MedicalCityArlington.com/RSVP.

Free valet parking is available for the community Sip & See event in the Women’s Hospital circular driveway. All event guests should check in at the Women’s Hospital lobby, 3301 Matlock Road, Arlington 76015.
