Texas Health Huguley Hospital will celebrate the grand opening of its $75 million, five-story, 116,000-square-foot critical care tower later this month. The tower, which has two stories shelved for future growth, will double the size of the emergency department, increase patient rooms from 24 to 44, and double the number of ambulance bays from three to six. There will be a new medical intensive care unit with 20 patient rooms, a 25 percent increase from its previous location, and new oncology and dining areas. The opening of the efficiently designed tower coincides with the pursuit of a Level III Trauma status, which the hospital expects to obtain this summer.


Medical City Dallas’ new 11,000-square-foot off-campus emergency room was built with pre-constructed modules, which comprise the main structure of what will be called Medical City ER Garland. The full-service, 24/7 ER is expected to open later this spring and will have 10 patient treatment rooms, including a trauma room, full laboratory, and imaging suite. Sections were built in Alabama and shipped to the site via trucks, increasing the speed and impact of construction. The modules make up the walls and main roof of the exam rooms, treatment areas, and lobby. Each section weighs 65,000 pounds and was put into place by a 550-ton crane.


More than a dozen UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers were named to the 2023 Highly Cited Researchers list, which honors the top 1 percent of scientists from around the world who are influential in their fields. The list is produced each year by the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate, a British analytics company that recognizes researchers who have published multiple highly cited papers and rank in the top percent regarding citations. This year’s list includes 6,849 researchers in 67 countries and represents the top 0.1 percent of scientists worldwide.

Hope Cottage, a North Texas adoption, foster care, education, and parenting support nonprofit, is opening a maternal medical clinic. In a partnership with HHM Health, CeCe’s Place will provide affordable healthcare for underserved pregnant individuals. A $2 million gift from The George and Fay Young Foundation funded the clinic, named for the Youngs’ late daughter, Carol Young Marvin, who they adopted through Hope Cottage.
