HCA North Texas opened its newest hospital, Medical City Frisco, in April.
The former Forest Park Medical Center at 5500 Frisco Square Blvd. was acquired out of bankruptcy by HCA North Texas of Irving for $96.25 million in a deal approved by a bankruptcy judge in February.
The acquisition means HCA North Texas will have 13 Dallas-Fort Worth area hospital.
Medical City Frisco will operate as an acute care hospital with services including orthopedics, neurosurgery, gynecology, pediatric surgery, bariatrics, general surgery, ENT, robotics, and ER. Additional services, including OB and cardiovascular treatment, will be added in the future.
The Frisco facility includes 54 beds, 12 state-of-the-art operating suites including two DaVinci robots, a 24/7 emergency room, a full-imaging department with a 64-slice CT, MRI and fluoroscopy, a fully accredited lab, and a blood bank.
“Our goal is to deliver excellence always in quality, convenient, personalized health care,” said Erol Akdamar, president of HCA’s North Texas Division. “Medical City Frisco will help meet the community’s growing medical needs when and where residents need them.”
Forest Park’s Fort Worth facility also filed for bankruptcy and has reportedly been sold, but no new owner has been named at press time.
