Neal Richards group opens medical centre in Fort Worth, Texas

Neal Richards Group has introduced the $95m Forest Park Medical Center Fort Worth in Texas, US.

The project included development of the hospital, a medical office building and a 550-space parking garage. Balfour Beatty Construction was general contractor while the project architect was Perkins + Will.

Balfour Beatty vice-president of operations in the Fort Worth office Read Ballew said: “This is the second Forest Park Medical Center campus Balfour Beatty has built with Neal Richards Group in North Texas.

“We recognise Forest Park’s commitment to providing healthcare of unsurpassed quality and appreciate the opportunity to assist them in the delivery of a cutting-edge healthcare facility in Fort Worth.”

The new 150,000ft² Forest Park hospital is part of a $5bn hospital-building programme in North Texas to replace ageing facilities, as well as to meet the demands of a growing population.

The hospital includes 12 full integrated operating suites, full-service imaging centre and laboratory, 54 private inpatient rooms including family suites, six intensive care rooms, full ancillary services, peaceful outdoor spaces and vegetated roof systems.

Neal Richards Group CEO Nick Summerville said: “This project was highly successful and Balfour Beatty Construction truly lived-up to our definition of a trusted partner.”

Forest Park Medical Center currently operates medical facilities in Dallas, Southlake, Frisco, San Antonio and Fort Worth, Texas and is focused on providing unsurpassed surgical specialty care.
