HCA hospitals in North Texas are getting a new name.
The expansive healthcare network, which has operated as HCA North Texas, will now be known as Medical City Healthcare. And the company’s 13 area hospitals, which have operated under a variety of monikers, will all adopt the Medical City name.
In Tarrant County, the rebranding affects six facilities:
- Medical Center Alliance will now be Medical City Alliance.
- Medical Center Arlington will be Medical City Arlington.
- Plaza Medical Center of Fort Worth will be Medical City Fort Worth.
- North Hills Hospital will be Medical City North Hills.
- The ER at Burleson will be Medical City ER Burleson.
- The ER in Saginaw will be Medical City ER Saginaw.
The new name takes effect immediately.
The healthcare network, owned by Nashville-based Hospital Corporation of America, has long used the Medical City name for its big hospital in Dallas. Other hospital networks, such as Texas Health Resources, have similarly adopted common branding for their facilities.
The company said the name change coincides with $1.5 billion in capital investments being made over three years. Its Fort Worth hospital, formerly Plaza Medical, recently announced plans for $64 million in improvements, including construction of a three-story building that will house a new emergency room.
