On Friday, June 3, Medical Center Alliance broke ground on a new ER built to serve the Saginaw community.
Medical Center Alliance is planning to open the new 11,000 square-foot, 12-bed facility in October near the intersection of Bailey Boswell Road and US 287. Board certified emergency physicians will provide emergency coverage for both pediatric and adult patients, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The ER will include a dedicated trauma code room, complete medical laboratory, on-site blood bank, and the latest in technology and imaging services.
“At Medical Center Alliance, we go above and beyond to create the best patient experience possible,” says Glenn Wallace, Chief Executive Officer for Medical Center Alliance. “The Medical City Alliance ER Saginaw will feature the same dedication to the patient experience.”
Although Saginaw has been a part of the explosive growth associated with the Alliance corridor in far north Fort Worth, residents have not previously had access to emergency services in their own community. Medical City ER Saginaw is designed to meet the community’s growing needs for emergency service close to home.
“This is foundational. This is a quality of life issue for our citizens and it’s wonderful that Medical Center Alliance decided to invest in this community,” says Mayor Gary Brinkley, who spoke at the groundbreaking ceremony. “We are also excited to offer high-quality jobs here within the City and the fact that you will have professionals working here, shopping here and eating in our restaurants is a great thing as well.”
Once open, Medical City ER Saginaw will operate as a department of Medical Center Alliance, the rapidly growing full service hospital which opened in February 2015 to serve the growing population of the Alliance corridor and beyond.
