HCA Healthcare plans to build five new full-service hospitals in Texas to meet the state’s growing population and need for healthcare services.
The new hospitals will be located in the Dallas Fort-Worth area; Houston area; in San Antonio, in partnership with Methodist Healthcare Ministries; and two will be in the Austin area, in partnership with St. David’s Foundation and Georgetown Health Foundation.
WHY THIS MATTERS
The new facilities will complement the health system’s already existing presence in several rapidly-growing communities across Texas, HCA said.
“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,” CEO Sam Hazen said.
HCA Healthcare currently has 45 hospitals and 632 affiliated sites of care in Texas and serves communities across the state, including Austin, El Paso, the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, San Antonio, Houston, Corpus Christi and the Rio Grande Valley.
