Mansfield has a new medical campus in Texas Health Hospital Mansfield, a joint partnership between Texas Health and AdventHealth that includes a new hospital and medical office building. The campus officially opened Dec. 1.
For years, much of the region’s healthcare expansion reached north into Dallas-Fort Worth’s growing northern suburbs, but 2020 has been a year of health systems looking toward growing communities on the southern side of the metropolitan area. Last month, Methodist Health System opened Methodist Midlothian Medical Center, and now Texas Health has opened up another hospital just to the northwest along highway 287 in Mansfield. Mansfield touches Tarrant, Ellis, and Johnson counties and has experienced 10 percent growth between 2011 and 2017. The community is expected to top 250,000 people by 2022.
Texas Health Mansfield will offer comprehensive hospital services that include emergency care, general surgery, women’s care, orthopedics and interventional cardiology. The$150 million, four-story facility is nearly 200,000 square feet and has an initial capacity of 59 beds, with the ability to expand to 95. The hospital is accompanied by a 80,000 square foot medical office building that will have primary care and specialty practices on a 38-acre campus.
“We are so excited to open our doors and begin caring for the Mansfield community,” said Kenneth Rose, CEO of Texas Health Hospital Mansfield via release. “We are blessed to have outstanding doctors, clinicians and team members who are eager to provide whole-person care to each person who trusts us for their needs. We look forward to working with residents and partners to help make this community healthier.”

Rose, who spoke with D CEO for a community hospital round table earlier this year, is leading a hospital that was partially built with modular construction, meaning entire walls or bathrooms were built off site and dropped into the building completely finished. The joint venture is a continuation of one that began with Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South, a 356-bed facility serving residents of Ellis, Johnson and Tarrant counties.
Because the pandemic limited what would have been a celebration to open the facility, Texas Health donated the money slotted for a grand opening event to Mansfield Independent School District, Harvest in Mansfield Center, Toys for Tots, Mansfield Mission Center and Mansfield Cares.
“While the pandemic has forced so many individuals and businesses to have to put plans on hold, we know that the health care needs of those we serve can’t wait,” said Barclay E. Berdan, CEO of Texas Health Resources via release. “But thanks to the implementation of COVID-19 safety precautions, we were able to stay on schedule and bring these needed services to Mansfield and the surrounding areas.”
