Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) November 06, 2014
Victory Medical Center Fort Worth, located at the corner of South Main Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, marked a milestone in its construction this week of the $70 million 105,000-square-foot medical facility with a traditional ‘topping out’ ceremony.
The Fort Worth Medical Center, which is the eighth Victory location in Texas, is establishing a premier medical facility in the Near Southside community, including a 50,000-square-foot medical office building. Victory will help anchor new commercial development that will further revitalize the area.
“This week's ceremony is a perfect symbol of the growth of Victory Healthcare and the progress of the Victory Medical Center Fort Worth location,” said Victory Healthcare Chairman and CEO, Robert N. Helms Jr. “We are thrilled to bring a state-of-the-art medical facility that will not only provide superior personalized care but will be an important part of the growth of Near Southside in Fort Worth.”
The general contractor on the project is Metzger Construction Co. from Houston, with architects Kaim Associates, Inc. from Kingwood, Texas, as the lead architectural firm for the interior and Curtis Group Architects, LTD from Dallas for the exterior. The building’s architecture will pay homage to the heritage of Fort Worth. Special attention has been paid to the façade, including a replica of the beloved St. Joseph Hospital Tower and even the historic dentil moldings that lined rooftops of the buildings of Fort Worth’s past.
“We are grateful to the leadership of Victory Healthcare who made a significant commitment to the care of our citizens,” said Mayor Betsy Price. “This new facility not only supports more quality healthcare options for the people of Fort Worth, but it also supports our growing workforce and builds on the progress being made in our Near Southside. This is exciting!”
The surgical hospital is slated to be ready for patients by summer 2015 and will include 25 inpatient beds with VIP-sized suites, seven state-of-the-art intensive care rooms, eight operating rooms and four special procedure rooms.
Victory Medical Center Fort Worth will perform specialty procedures including spinal, orthopedic and general surgery as well as gynecology, urology, bariatric, reconstructive plastics, ear, nose and throat and pain management procedures. Patients at Victory Medical Center Fort Worth will enjoy personalized care and attention in private patient suites, all of which offer Wi-Fi Internet connectivity, cable television and oversized floor plans to comfortably accommodate family and friends.
