Signs inside and outside Plaza Medical Center of Fort Worth are transitioning to the new name of Medical City Fort Worth. The renaming is part of a unifying name change for Medical City Healthcare’s 13 North Texas hospitals and seven off-campus hospital. In addition, ER at Burleson will now be known as Medical City ER Burleson, a department of Medical City Fort Worth.

The unifying name change coincides with a major capital investment initiative of more than $1.5 billion spent or committed across the Medical City Healthcare system over three years.

Medical City Fort Worth is undergoing more than $100 million in expansion and improvement projects, some of which were completed in 2016. Construction is expected to begin in May on a new, $64 million, three-story patient tower, including a new Emergency Department, a 28-bed intensive care unit and a rooftop helipad. Other improvement projects include:

  • Additional neuro-interventional radiology lab ($2.3 million)
  • New cardiac electrophysiology lab ($2.3 million)
  • New inpatient rehabilitation unit ($3.6 million)
  • Two Da Vinci Xi© robotic systems ($6.75 million)
  • Upgrades/Updates for equipment, facilities and programs: Operating room, MRI suite, endoscopy, anesthesia machines, ICU beds and monitors, new comprehensive liver program, and more.
