A $40 million expansion of Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth is under way, with groundbreaking ceremonies held this week.

Shovels in hand, hospital and city officials, as well as business executives, gathered on Thursday Sept. 18 at the construction site to celebrate the expansion, across the street from the hospital’s main campus at 6100 Harris Parkway.

The expansion will add the second of two medical office buildings to the campus. The $40 million, five-story facility will feature an endoscopy and outpatient surgery center including an observation deck between operating rooms for families and other visitors. Also planned are three floors of physician office space for future growth and a five-story parking garage.

Serving as the project construction firm is Dallas-based Skiles Group, with HKS Architects serving as project architect. The projected opening date is fall 2015.

Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth is a 220-bed acute care, full-service facility providing care for residents of southwest Tarrant County. Its services include surgical and imaging services, a 24-hour emergency department, orthopedics and sports therapy, adult critical care, and a Level III neonatal intensive care unit.
