Texas Health Resources plans health care facility in Prosper

🕐 2 min read

Texas Health Resources, Matthews Southwest and the Prosper Economic Development Corp. (EDC) plan to build an advanced outpatient facility to serve patients in northwest Collin County and northeast Denton County. Texas Health, the largest health system in North Texas, recently acquired a 10.45-acre tract in Prosper at the northeast corner of U.S. Highway 380 and what will eventually be Mahard Parkway. The tract is part of a larger mixed-use development of Matthews Southwest, a private real estate development company with headquarters in Lewisville.

“The Town of Prosper is aptly named,” said Becky Tucker, vice president of integrated health campuses for Texas Health. “It is full of energetic people, young families and a truly Texan entrepreneurial spirit. Texas Health plans to build an advanced outpatient facility that provides convenient access to a variety of health services the community needs and wants. We believe our expanded presence in north Collin County will help the people in Prosper and the surrounding communities of north Frisco, west McKinney, Celina and Little Elm improve their health and overall well-being.”

Plans for the Texas Health site have not been finalized and must still be approved by the Texas Health Resources board. Texas Health opened an advanced outpatient center on a similar site in Burleson in 2010, and another site is under development in Willow Park west of Fort Worth. The advanced outpatient center model, also sometimes referred to as an integrated health campus, typically includes physician practice offices, imaging services, a fitness facility and an emergency department. Each of Texas Health’s integrated health campuses is planned and built to meet the specific needs of the surrounding communities, according to Tucker.

“Over the next several months, we will evaluate the market and develop plans for the Prosper facility and the services that will be offered. We expect this facility will evolve over time and continue to meet community needs,” Tucker said. The announcement made on Nov. 13 is the first of many planned for the 187 acres being developed by Matthews Southwest. The mixed-use development will include office, retail, restaurants, entertainment and upscale residential sites. According to Robert Winningham, executive director for the Prosper EDC, Texas Health will also be a catalyst for a medical cluster that is extending north into Prosper along the Dallas North Tollway from Frisco.
