Medical City Lewisville has recently renovated the hospital’s maternal unit. The $3.5 million revamp included modern, high-end fixtures, TVs, and decor in the 58-bed women’s unit. The area includes private labor and delivery rooms, fetal medicine specialists, nurse midwife and doula collaborative, and more. The hospital was voted “Best Hospital to Have a Baby” in DFWChild Magazine. You can see a tour of the renovated facility here.

End-to-end healthcare revenue cycle and IT services company Access Healthcare has doubled its employee headcount in the last 15 months, recently reaching 25,000 employees. The 12-year-old company and third-party revenue cycle service provider works with hospital and health systems and is looking to make acquisitions and creating strategic partnerships.

AyuVis Research, Inc. will be part of MassChallenge’s 2022 U.S. Early-Stage Cohort and will join 200 other startups out of more than 1,000 applicants.

Bell will be responsible for new associate development and surgeon recruitment, and Perciaccante will lead business development and clinical compliance and clinical processes.
