Hillwood Properties, developer of the 17,000-acre AllianceTexas master-planned community, is pleased to announce the sale of more than nine acres at Alliance Town Center for the development of Wise Regional Health System’s Parkway Surgical Hospital.
The 29,053-square-foot inpatient medical facility will be located on North Tarrant Parkway, and is a joint venture between the Wise Regional Health System and Office Equity Solutions. A groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate construction was held on Friday, Dec. 14, and the facility is expected to open in late 2013.
“Parkway Surgical Hospital is an important addition to Alliance Town Center,” said Mike Berry, president of Hillwood Properties. “Development of a state-of-the-art health care facility of this type, in addition to Texas Health Harris Methodist Alliance and ER at Alliance, is an indication that AllianceTexas is becoming a first class medical center. This growing medical community will offer residents convenient access to some of the finest health care services that North Texas has to offer.”
The hospital will include four operating rooms, two procedure rooms and 12 inpatient beds. The surgical hospital will also include laboratory, radiology and pre-operative services, as well as an emergency room.
"The surgical hospital is a niche facility that will help fill the gap of services that are currently not provided in the immediate area,” said Steve Summers, chief executive officer of Wise Regional Health System. “Our goal is to provide a facility for physicians, equipped with advanced surgical and cath lab technologies, which will greatly benefit patients in the area who would otherwise have to make a significant commute for similar care.
Spine Care, Orthopedics, Plastic Surgery, Pain Management and Gastroenterology are also services that will also be available. Compared to larger, full-service hospitals, Parkway Surgical will offer flexible scheduling with a specialized nursing staff focused on personalized care.
“Office Equity Solutions is pleased to serve as the development manager on Wise Regional’s Surgery Facility,” said James Lancaster, chief executive officer of Office Equity Solutions. “This important project offers advanced medical services to a market that continues to prosper as a result of master planned communities and record population growth.”
Tom Harris, Mark Miller and Joe Schneider represented Hillwood Properties in the land sale transaction.
