Medical City Alliance broke ground Sept. 3 on a new ambulatory surgery center that is expected to be completed in early 2021.

The 18,630-square-foot project cost $10 million and will feature environmentally conscious design and construction, according to a press release. The project, originally approved in July 2019, will be jointly owned with 17 physician partners to provide surgical services in five specialties. Those specialties are orthopedics; bariatrics; gynecology; ear, nose and throat; and general surgery.


“We are proud to continue to invest in the North Fort Worth/Alliance community, which continues to grow at a phenomenal rate,” Medical City Alliance CEO Glen Wallace said in the release. “Innovation and anticipating future community needs helps keep our community healthy and advances our mission to the care and improvement of human life.”

The center will also offer four leading-edge operating rooms, two private recovery rooms, a separate pediatric recovery area and a spacious waiting area. The latest in patient safety technology will also be featured, according to the release.

Medical City Alliance is also undergoing a $51 million expansion with two additional patient floors, more catheterization lab space, emergency room capacity and a new laboratory. These expansions correlate with a strategic development plan for the 76-acre campus located at the northeast corner of I-35W and North Tarrant Parkway.
