Medstar breaks ground on new North Deployment Center

Councilmembers Dennis Shingleton and Brian Byrd turn the first shovels of dirt for the new MedStar project.

Medstar broke ground on its North Deployment Center at 8928 Medical City Parkway. The new center will be 20,000 square feet and IDI is the general contractor.

For 33 years, MedStar has used a centralized deployment model, with all units starting shifts and deployed across the service area from a headquarters facility on Alta Mere Drive in Fort Worth. To better serve the far north side of the ambulance service area, MedStar is building the new deployment center between Medical City Alliance and the Fort Worth Police Department’s North Division Sector, which opened in 2018.

Once it opens, the new facility will deploy assets to the northern part of the city and help improve emergency response in the fast-growing sector, according to a news release..
