Cook Children’s Health System participated in the groundbreaking of the Las Vegas Trail Neighborhood Health Center this week to address the area’s lack of healthcare providers. The center will provide pediatric, adult, behavioral health, and social services in a two-story, 40,000-square-foot facility. It will include Cook Children’s ninth Neighborhood Health Center, a new JPS Medical Home, a food pantry, community education, and onsite job training for healthcare industry positions. There will also be a Fort Worth Police storefront onsite. The center is expected to open in late 2025.

Steve Idoux will be the new president of insurer Lockton Dunning after leading the Dallas office since 2021. Idoux will lead the region’s sales team and develop the firm’s reputation as a leader in employee benefits solutions and corporate wellbeing consulting. Idoux will assume the role as longtime CEO Bruce Sammis announced his retirement at the end of this year. Idoux joined Lockton in 2007 as a vice president and became a partner in 2019. He previously served in a sales and account management role at Cigna.

TechFW is moving to a chief executive officer leadership model and will also add a chief operating officer role. Hayden Blackburn, who served as the executive director for the past five years, will be filling the position of COO. The organization’s Board of Directors decided to unlock the full potential of the organization, which was founded 25 years ago. TechFW is looking for an executive with experience in planning and donor relations who can work with the board and stakeholders as they drive the mission forward. Interested candidates can learn more here.
