New Tower Signals New Opportunities for Nurses
We’re so fortunate to be in a thriving service area. In fact, our service area population has grown 59 percent since the hospital opened. The community’s growing demand for health care services includes emergency, surgical, and acute medical, and our award-winning Women’s Center has experienced dramatic growth in births and neonatal intensive care services.
Why are we so excited about the new Tower Two? Here are some quick facts about the new 208,000-square-foot building:
- 22 additional ICU beds
- Expanded dialysis unit from three to eight beds
- 32 additional cardiac telemetry beds
- 32 additional postsurgical beds
- Expanded telemetry monitoring capability to 144 units
- 32 beds available for future expansion
- Cath lab upgraded to accommodate electrophysiology procedures.
For nurses, Tower Two represents quality and safety improvements in the environment of care, including a new telemetry and nurse-call system to provide leading-edge patient monitoring and safety features. All rooms are WIFI ready for patients and visitors. The nurse-call system is integrated with the safety features of the patient’s bed to alert nursing staff when someone needs assistance without the patient having to call. In addition, increased space in Tower Two will enable us to build on specialized services such as neurosciences.
Methodist Mansfield employees have always enjoyed working in a top-notch, family-friendly facility. Tower Two takes this to the next level with expanded food services, cozy areas where staff can take a break and get away, and other amenities.
The new Tower Two is tangible evidence of the reputation our staff has established for delivering top-notch quality patient care. In fact, since our opening, we’ve been voted a Best Medical Facility, Best Maternity Ward, and Best Emergency Department in North Texas. A big part of our quality and commitment to excellence is our commitment to our employees. We truly are one big family, a team of health care professionals that strives day in and day out to deliver the best care to our patients and their families. Quality and patient safety are our highest priorities and community service is a hallmark of our culture.
New buildings facilitate our ability to achieve our mission, but it’s our people who make the difference. So with the opening of the new Tower Two, we’re looking for nurses, patient care technicians, and ancillary staff who are committed to providing compassionate, quality patient care. The best additions for our team are people who have a positive attitude and strive to do their best for every patient, every time.
