Forest Park Medical Center opened its Southlake hospital with much fanfare in June 2013. Less than a year later, it is celebrating another milestone: the topping off ceremony of the new four-story medical office building adjoining the main facility (in front of the parking garage). Construction began October 2013 and it is scheduled to be complete this August.
At 88,000 square feet, the medical office building will house an urgent care center, pharmacy, bank, various physician practices, and possibly a women’s imaging suite.
The new medical office building is being built by Adolfson & Peterson Construction, Neal Richards Group and LandPlan Development for approximately $19 million. Representatives from each company, along with Forest Park Medical Center administrators and City of Southlake council members, attended the topping off ceremony March 19.
“The event today is meant to take a moment to recognize the hard work up to this point and look ahead at the work still to be done. All project partners took time to celebrate the creation of an environment that will make a difference in the lives of patients and their families,” stated by Reed Williams of LandPlan Development.
With 142,000 square feet, the hospital is equipped with 54 private inpatient rooms; 10 VIP suites; 12 large operating suites; six ICU beds; two endoscopy/special procedure suites; and full-service imaging, MRI and CT scan; Forest Park Medical Center Southlake also contains emergency and intensive care departments that are staffed by physicians 24/7.
