GRAPEVINE, SOUTHLAKE - Area residents will have more health care closer to home in 2013, as the expansion of Baylor Regional Medical Center at Grapevine wraps up and the new Forest Park Medical Center is completed. Both are expected to open this summer. Together, they will add nearly 100 hospital beds to the area and create several hundred more jobs.

  • Grapevine: Baylor Regional Medical Center, located at 1650 W. College, plans to begin admitting patients in June after the completion of the $100.5 million expansion. The hospital has added nine rooms to the emergency department, — which sees more than 45,000 patients a year — four new operating rooms, a new cath lab and a dedicated orthopedic unit. The facility also added a 48-bed patient tower, bringing the total beds at the hospital to more than 300. The hospital employs about 1,300 people.
  • Southlake: The new 141,000-sf, $80 million general and acute care specialty hospital, located at 335 E. Hwy. 114, is expected to start admitting patients around June 1. The physician-owned Medical Center will have 38 private rooms, 12 state-of-the-art operating suites and a 400-space parking garage. There also will be ten VIP suites to accommodate family members, as well as patients. The hospital is expected to create 250-300 full-time jobs.
