Joining Mayor David Cook and City Manager Clayton Chandler were the mayors of Arlington, Grand Prairie, Kennedale and Midlothian. The mayors commemorated the event by placing their handprints in cement, which will be displayed at the hospital.
“This hospital has made a significant difference in the lives of our residents,” said City Manager Clayton Chandler. “They have saved lives. And we are grateful for the commitment they have made to our community.”
“We could not have asked for a better partner than Methodist Mansfield,” said Mayor David Cook. “They are not only providing quality healthcare to our residents and to people throughout the region, they are active in our community.”
When Methodist Mansfield opened in Dec. 27, 2006, the 88-bed community hospital was Methodist Health System’s first health care facility in Tarrant County. Today, Methodist Mansfield has grown to a 254-bed hospital, offering some of the latest in medical technology and innovative treatments through dozens of specialties. The hospital recently added four new operating rooms with a focus on neurosurgery and minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery, as well as award-winning cardiology services at the Amon G. Carter Foundation Heart and Vascular Center.
In these 10 years, the hospital has grown and achieved exceptional safety scores, outperformed other hospitals in key quality measures to provide the best patient care, and has become the preferred hospital in the area.
In the past decade, Methodist Mansfield has treated 772,498 total patients, 438,114 in the emergency departments and delivered 15,136 babies.
