Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth is set to open its $300m Jane and John Justin Tower on 2 April this year.

The nine-story tower, which adds 400,000ft2 space to the hospital, includes new pre- and postoperative suites services, 15 surgery suites and 144 beds.

The opening will increase surgical capacity by approximately 30%.

According to a Texas Health Resources statement, the tower features dedicated neurosurgery and orthopaedics operating suites.

The new surgical suites are double the size of current operating rooms (ORs) to fit modern imaging and robotic technology.

The ORs are also designed to accommodate larger equipment in future.

Additionally, the healthcare system said that all the patient rooms at the tower are private and can be modified for providing different levels of care, from general medical-surgical to critical care.

The tower will also include patient-friendly wayfinding, along with indoor and outdoor spaces for visitors.

Texas Health Resources CEO and Texas Health Fort Worth former president Barclay Berdan said: “Justin Tower reinforces Texas Health’s long-standing commitment to the Fort Worth community.

“What began as a small community hospital has evolved into a world-class medical centre serving the 12th largest city in the US.”

Texas Health Fort Worth president Joseph DeLeon said: “Our service area includes 1.2 million people in four counties, and that’s expected to grow by another 100,000 over the next five years.

“The larger, more modern facilities allow us to treat this growing population with specialty services, including trauma, neuroscience, heart and vascular, and many others.”
