FORT WORTH – Medical City Fort Worth, as Plaza Medical is now known, will see some big changes with a $64 million expansion project scheduled to begin first quarter 2017.

Plans include additional emergency rooms, a new 28-bed ICU, and a helipad.

The new ICUs will be focused on Medical City Fort Worth’s growing transplant program, which includes kidney and liver transplants.

The hospital will end this year with 120 kidney transplants.​

A new 103,557-sf, three-story building, to be built across Ninth Ave. on land currently being used as a parking lot and to the west of the current hospital building, should open in 2018. 

The new building will be connected to the current hospital by an elevated crosswalk over Ninth Ave. Total cost for the ER project will be approximately $34 million, part of the $64 million total.
