HCA Healthcare is planning to expand its number of hospitals in Texas.
The health care provider announced it will be building five new full-service hospitals in Texas via a Jan. 26 press release. The company will be opening new hospitals in Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio in partnership with Methodist Healthcare Ministries, and two in Austin in partnership with St. David’s Foundation and Georgetown Health Foundation.
Community Impact Newspaper has reached out for more information on when the hospitals will open and what the exact addresses will be and will update the story when the information becomes available. HCA operates 45 hospitals and 632 affiliated sites of care throughout Texas.
The cities were chosen as a way to meet the health care needs of rapidly growing areas, according to the press release.
“Communities across Texas are undergoing a rapid increase in population, and the addition of these new hospitals will help our existing network meet the increasing need for healthcare services,” HCA Healthcare CEO Sam Hazen said. “We are thrilled to expand our presence in Texas, and we believe it will enhance our care and better serve our patients.”
