Fort Worth-based Cook Children’s Health Care System, on Thursday, announced it will build a new children’s hospital in Prosper, the suburban town on the eastern fringes of Denton County.

The new hospital will sit on Cook Children’s North Campus, a 23-acre site at Windsong Parkway and Highway 380.

Cook Children’s Medical Center North will act as an inpatient pediatric hospital consisting of a neonatal intensive care unit, pediatric intensive care unit, emergency department, operating rooms and medical and surgical unit.

The hospital is scheduled to open in 2022.

“With more than one million patient encounters each year, Cook Children’s is proud of its far-reaching reputation that attracts patients and families from all over the world,” Rick Merrill, President and CEO of Cook Children’s Health Care System, said in a statement. “Our full intent is to offer leading-edge technology and services that when combined with our integrated delivery model brings an outstanding patient and family experience.”

Cook Children’s North Campus in Prosper is currently undergoing phase one of its construction. Phase one includes establishments offering primary and urgent care services, scheduled to open later this year. Then, an outpatient surgery center and a comprehensive outpatient specialty center, including imaging and lab services, will open in spring 2020 at the Prosper campus location.

“Cook Children’s has made a promise to improve the health of every child in our six-county region and that means we have to continue to expand our reach to keep up with a rapidly growing area like we are seeing in Prosper and Denton County,” Nancy Cychol, chief of hospital services for Cook Children’s, said in a statement. “By looking ahead at the growing pediatric health care needs in this community, we are ensuring our promise is kept.”

The Prosper site is the fourth medical center campus for Cook Children’s. Its flagship campus is located in downtown Fort Worth.

Cook Children’s also has a new pediatrics center set to open at Walsh Ranch Parkway in Fort Worth in fall 2019.
