Final preparations are being made on Texas Health Huguley’s new hospital before the community celebration and tours on July 17.
Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South invites the community to its Grand Opening on Sunday, July 17 from 4 to 7 pm. Attendees will enjoy tours of the new hospital, family activities, music and refreshments before the hospital opens to patients on August 7.
“Interest in the new hospital has been immense since we broke ground more than two years ago. This beautiful healing sanctuary we have built is unsurpassed in our area, and we want to give our friends and neighbors the opportunity to see all that we have to offer,” said Ken Finch, president and CEO of Texas Health Huguley Hospital.
The hospital’s family-friendly design features large rooms that include a couch that folds into a bed for an overnight guest. Each patient floor has three visitor lounges.
New wireless technology in patient rooms includes a 42” smart TV, so that patients can watch educational videos, select a movie from the rotating library or use other apps. The television also displays the name, photo and title of employees or physicians who enter the room. The rooms also feature a computer for documentation, a patient safe, bedside controls of the shades and television, and a state-of-the-art nurse call system.
The hospital’s new lobby leads into a convenient registration, pretesting, lab and outpatient services area. A new chapel, gift shop, bistro and landscaped courtyard also create a welcoming entrance to the hospital.
The second floor is dedicated to women’s care with eight private labor/delivery/recovery suites, 20 post-partum rooms and two C-section delivery rooms.
The new six-story hospital totals 234,300 square feet. The second through fifth floors of the new hospital will house 140 beds, and the sixth floor will add another 36 beds when completed in the future.
Finch continued, “Texas Health Huguley has provided our growing community with the highest quality of healthcare, delivered with compassion, for almost 40 years. This new hospital is a symbol of our dedication to serving our neighbors with personal world-class care."
