Texas Health breaks ground in Willow Park

By CHRISTIN COYNE

WILLOW PARK – Texas Health Resources broke ground Friday morning on an outpatient center in Willow Park that is expected to provide East Parker County patients with a local emergency room and primary and specialty care doctors beginning next fall.

Called the Texas Health Outpatient Center Willow Park, the 60,000-square-foot health care facility, located at Crown Pointe Boulevard and the north Interstate 20 service road, will include a 3-story medical office building, an emergency room and a fitness center as part of the $20 million project.

The campus will offer cardiac rehabilitation, physical therapy, behavioral health services, laboratory services, advanced imaging and a chronic disease management program.

The non-profit health system hopes to attract various types of doctors to the medical office building, including internists, orthopedists, cardiologists, OB/GYNs, neurologists, urologists and urogynecologists. Many East Parker County residents currently have to go to Fort Worth or Weatherford for many of the health care options that the new facility will provide.

Texas Health expects to later expand on the 8-acre site to feature a surgery center and additional space for physicians and medical services. Eventually, they could have a hospital as part of the health campus, Dr. Jeffrey Canose, executive vice president for Texas Health and the system’s Southwest Zone operations leader, said.

“We’re proud to be a part of the Willow Park community and look forward to serving residents here for years to come,” Canose said. “Texas Health Willow Park will not only provide emergency care and other basic health services. It will be an integrated health campus that promotes well-being and population health.”

The services offered will be tailored to the most prevalent needs of the area, according to Canose, who said they want to offer health care services that will help keep people out of the hospital. The outpatient center is expected to be completed in November 2014.

They plan to hold a large open house event with preventative health screenings before the location goes live, Canose said.

“We’re excited that Texas Health is coming to Willow Park,” Richard Neverdousky, Willow Park mayor, said in a statement. “This facility is going to be a beautiful, state-of-the-art campus ready to serve local residents and grow as our community grows.”

The health campus will be Texas Health’s first facility in Parker County, though they currently serve Parker County residents at their Azle and downtown Fort Worth hospitals.

“Texas Health provides care to more patients in the southwest region of North Texas than any other health care provider by offering high-level services to communities throughout the area,” said Dr. Harold Berenzweig, executive vice president for Texas Health and the system’s Southwest Zone clinical leader. “Today, we’re breaking ground on a facility that will bring primary care and other select specialties to Willow Park and surrounding Parker County communities, making it more convenient for residents to get quality care close to home.”
