New rehabilitation hospital planned in Arlington
Two area hospital systems will team with a Nashville company to build a 40-bed rehabilitation hospital in Arlington. Arlington-based Texas Health Resources, Dallas-based Methodist Health System and rehab specialist Centerre Healthcare Corp. plan to break ground on the facility this summer in southern Arlington. Centerre has previously partnered with those organizations on Texas Rehabilitation Hospital of Fort Worth, a THR facility, and Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital in Dallas.
Texas Rehabilitation Hospital of Arlington will serve patients recovering from strokes and other brain or spinal cord injuries, amputations and other complex injuries. It’s expected to employ about 150 people when open. The companies did not disclose an address for the new facility, but said it will be between Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital, at 800 W. Randol Mill Road in central Arlington, and Methodist Mansfield Medical Center at 2700 E. Broad St.
