South Texas healthcare company planning medical center in Fort Worth South
Victory Healthcare, based in The Woodlands, plans a state-of-the-art medical center at the corner of south Main Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, bringing about 140 new jobs to Fort Worth’s near southside when it is completed in 2014.
Victory Medical Center Fort Worth will include an 85,000-square-foot medical center and a 50,000-square-foot medical office building on the 6.5-acre site. The medical center will have 25 patient beds, including five suites with private family quarters, and four state-of-the-art intensive care rooms, eight operating rooms and four special procedure rooms.
The development’s architecture will pay homage to the heritage of Fort Worth, including a replica of the former St. Joseph Hospital Tower, Victory Healthcare said.
"This project is more than a building," said CEO Robert Helms Jr., in a statement. "We take seriously the honor of being part of the rebirth of south Main, and it will be reflected throughout the design of the building."
Medica Development, a Texas-based firm founded in 2007, will be the development leader for the project.
Victory Medical Center Fort Worth will provide specialty procedures such as spinal and orthopedic surgery, in addition to general surgery, gynecology, urology, bariatric, and ear, nose and throat procedures, as well as pain management.
Victory Healthcare said it focuses on the doctor/patient relationship, with a first class experience in state-of-the-art facilities that include concierge services and a one-to-one nurse to patient ratio. It has six other medical centers in the state.
