Methodist Midlothian Medical Center
As the Midlothian area continues to grow, the city is gaining its first full-service acute care hospital. Methodist Midlothian Medical Center, located on a 67-acre campus near U.S. Highway 287, features a 190,000-square-foot medical center and 45,000-square-foot medical office building. The hospital is now actively hiring respiratory therapists, staff nurses — especially ICU nurses, radiology technologists, medical technologists, and night shift environmental services and food services employees.
Methodist Midlothian is the 11th hospital to carry the Methodist Health System name, which has been providing outpatient services in North Ellis County for more than 10 years.
Together with independently practicing physicians, the medical center provides additional access to numerous medical services in the community. Specialized services include emergency care, surgical care, a mobile cardiac catheterization lab, labor and delivery, orthopedics, a GI lab, neurology, oncology, and more.
As a community medical center, it will help fill the gap for the health services most needed by local residents, including care for an aging population and specific chronic conditions.
“By increasing healthcare access, more residents can get the care they need without having to leave their community, family, or support system,” says Jary Ganske, vice president and administrator of Methodist Midlothian. “We want to give residents the innovative care they deserve close to home.”
By the first full year of operation, the hospital plans to create 300 jobs in Midlothian for healthcare professionals and support staff. This will place the medical center among the top 10 largest employers in the city. It also lays a foundation for continued growth in the healthcare sector and related industries in the future.
To support the projected development of the area, the five-story medical center has shell space for future expansion. The space will allow it to grow from 45 licensed beds to 80 during its first three years.
“Our new hospital is all about serving the health and well-being of our neighbors in this vibrant community,” Ganske says. “We’re honored by the trust residents have placed in us to care for their healthcare needs, and we look forward to building upon our strong partnership with Midlothian as it thrives for years to come.”
