Medical City Healthcare Announces Plans for Acquired Hospital in Frisco

Facility Becomes Thirteenth HCA Hospital in DFW

April 1, 2016 – Irving-based Medical City Healthcare has officially opened its newest hospital, Medical City Frisco. The recently-acquired facility is located in Frisco Square near Main Street and the Dallas North Tollway.

Medical City Frisco is operated as a campus of Medical City Plano, which allows the hospital to accept Medicare patients immediately and continue uninterrupted service to the community.

“Our goal is to deliver excellence always in quality, convenient, personalized health care,” said Erol Akdamar, president of Medical City Healthcare. “Medical City Frisco will help meet the community’s growing medical needs when and where residents need them.”

Medical City Frisco will operate as an acute care hospital with services including orthopedics, neurosurgery, gynecology, pediatric surgery, bariatrics, general surgery, ENT, robotics, and ER. Additional services, including OB and cardiovascular treatment, will be added in the future.

Medical City Frisco currently has 54 beds, 11 state-of-the-art operating suites including two DaVinci robots, a 24/7 emergency room, a full-imaging department with a 64-slice CT, MRI and fluoroscopy, a fully accredited lab, and a blood bank.

“We congratulate Medical City Healthcare on growing its business and welcome Medical City Frisco to our fast growing city,” said Mayor Maher Maso. “Quality health care is essential to any community and the establishment of a full-service hospital, in the heart of our city, enhances quality of life for our residents, as well as visitors.”

Medical City Frisco is the thirteenth HCA hospital in the DFW area. Medical City Healthcare is one of the region’s largest comprehensive health care providers, and also includes 56 patient care sites, more than 5500 active physicians and 15,000 employees in Dallas-Fort Worth and Oklahoma. In becoming part of the Medical City Healthcare, the facility will be able to offer patients the broader resources of a large hospital system when a higher level of care is required, along with a proven network of primary and urgent care centers.

A ceremony celebrating Medical City Frisco’s “New Roots” in the community is planned for April 11, at 10:30-11:30am.
