2019 Health Care Directory: JPS Health Network opens a new center to meet bond priorities


The John Peter Smith Health Network has a new oncology and infusion center. The facility for the Tarrant County Hospital District opened May 21 at 1405 8th Ave., Fort Worth, and will offer twice as much space for cancer patients and others who require infusion treatments.

“JPS had the opportunity to enter into a 10-year lease with Moncrief Cancer Institute/UT Southwestern for the former Texas Oncology building,” J.R. Labbe, vice president of communications and community affairs for JPS, said in an email.

A new cancer facility was included among the projects listed as priorities in the JPS 2018 bond package, Labbe said. With the new space, there is a tunnel that goes from Baylor Scott & White All Saints directly into the new center, providing an added convenience for patients, she said.
