LEWISVILLE - Medical Center of Lewisville (MCL) approved corporate funding to construct a new $17 million 24-bed Emergency Department (ED) at 500 W. Main. Construction on the 20,000-sf addition will begin early in 2014. The facility will house a 24-bed ED. Construction is scheduled to take about 15 months.

A small portion of the existing ED, which includes 8,700 sf, will receive major renovations for connectivity between the addition and main facility and to provide some additional support space for the ED.

The project includes $12.5 million for construction improvements and $4.5 million for equipment. The City of Lewisville’s Economic Development and Planning department approved tax incentives that enabled the hospital to receive final funding approval.

ED visits in 2010 were just under 41,000 but grew to more than 46,000 in 2012.

The hospital, which has been a part of the local community for more than 37 years, is a part of the Nashville-based HCA North Texas Division.
