Forest Park Medical Center at Southlake Acquired by Methodist Health System

Forest Park Medical Center is now part of the Methodist Health System and has been renamed Methodist Southlake Hospital. The agreement and sale were approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas May 17. Methodist Southlake Hospital will continue to offer an unparalleled healthcare experience for Southlake residents and surrounding communities. Methodist Health System’s award-winning health centers and hospitals have served North Texas since the founding of Methodist Dallas in 1927.

Methodist Southlake Hospital is a multi-specialty facility focused on the delivery of advanced surgical and procedural care and quality patient outcomes. Utilizing leading medical technologies and innovative procedural techniques, the hospital offers treatment options in several specialties, including bariatrics, orthopedic and spine surgery, plastic surgery, urology, gastroenterology, endoscopy, otolaryngology (ENT), gynecology, pain management, general surgery, hand surgery, neurosurgery, breast surgery and podiatry.

These services are offered in pleasant surroundings at the 142,000-square-foot hospital which features 54 private inpatient rooms; 10 family suites; six intensive care rooms; and 12 advanced, fully integrated operating suites.

“From the moment we first met with the Board, physicians and staff, we knew this was a truly special medical center,” said Stephen Mansfield, President and CEO of Methodist Health System. “We were very impressed with the community of Southlake and recognize it is a growing, thriving city that cares about its people. Methodist Health System feels very privileged to partner with Methodist Southlake Hospital as it continues to offer world-class service to its patients.”

To facilitate the acquisition, Methodist Health System partnered with NueHealth, a consumer-focused healthcare company creating accessible, affordable care opportunities through provider networks that they develop and integrate. Together, Methodist Health System and NueHealth are equipping Methodist Southlake Hospital with the means to streamline operations, further elevate patient experiences while optimizing quality outcomes.

“Methodist Southlake Hospital and the Methodist Health System are a perfect fit because our core beliefs and values naturally align,” said Robert Pollard, M.D., Methodist Southlake Hospital Board President. “Our focus on delivering the greatest patient care available is strengthened under the leadership of Methodist Health System. As a result, the transition into the Methodist system will be seamless for our hospital staff and our physicians, but most importantly to our patients.”

Aligning the existing hospital’s emphasis on a patient-centered culture with Methodist Health System’s superior standards for patient care and NueHealth’s ability to facilitate transparent and value-based delivery models, Methodist Southlake Hospital is expected to thrive as a pivotal care provider within the local community and surrounding region.
