Midlothian City Leaders with John Phillips.

Several months in the making, Methodist Health System is pleased to announce the plan for its eleventh hospital, which will be located in Midlothian. The new facility will operated in conjunction with the existing Methodist Mansfield Medical Center in order to facilitate the opening with all reasonable diligence. While architectural details are still being finalized, the hospital in Midlothian will be a licensed hospital with an emergency department and wide range of specialties and services.
“Midlothian, Ellis County and Tarrant County are booming, and those communities deserve exceptional, compassionate, quality healthcare in their neighborhood,” says Stephen L. Mansfield, PhD, FACHE. “Methodist has tripled in size over the past decade with ten hospitals and two dozen family health and urgent care centers. We’ve strategically looked to expand in flourishing communities like Midlothian, and we want the residents of Midlothian to know how much we value them and want to meet their needs.”
“As mayor of the city of Midlothian, I am very familiar with the pride our residents have in this city. They are passionate about their community and its future growth and success. I’m proud to say that the future just became brighter this year, thanks to the investment of Methodist Health System in Midlothian,” says Midlothian Mayor Bill Houston. “We have a long working relationship with Methodist and are so proud to have the system expand its presence, talents and expertise into our community.”
The hospital will sit on 65 acres of land along US-287 adjacent to the Midlothian ISD Multi-Purpose Stadium. Methodist plans to break ground in late summer 2018, and open the hospital in late 2019.

“We’ve seen how the communities of Midlothian, Mansfield, Grand Prairie, Arlington and many others have embraced Methodist, so constructing Midlothian’s first hospital is a natural fit for Methodist Health System and Methodist Mansfield,” says Pam Stoyanoff, FACHE, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Methodist Health System.
“Methodist Mansfield opened eleven years ago, and sought to build relationships with the city of Midlothian, the school district, and many residents, so this is the perfect next step,” says John Phillips, FACHE, President, Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. “As we celebrate all that we are grateful for this holiday season, we hope this announcement will be a gift to the Midlothian community we appreciate.”
