THR facility in Parker County could gain steam
A medical facility planned by Texas Health Resources in Parker County could be nearing reality. THR, parent of the Harris Methodist and Presbyterian hospital groups in North Texas, bought about 30 acres on the north side of Interstate 20 in Willow Park in 2010, and city officials have previously said they hoped a facility might be built in 2012.
THR representatives on Nov. 15 showed Willow Park officials preliminary plans for a campus at the site starting as early as 2014, the Weatherford Democrat reported last month. Those plans included a 40,000-square-foot campus, starting with an emergency department, imaging center and medical office building. Eventually the project could grow to a hospital with perhaps 40 beds, but not until after 2020 and only as demand warrants, the newspaper reported.
