Methodist begins building $237 million hospital in Celina

CELINA, Texas — Methodist Health System has begun construction on its newest hospital, a four-story, 200,000-square-foot hospital that will rise from the prairie in northern Collin County to serve the growing town of Celina and its surrounding communities.

City leaders and other members of the community joined hospital executives Tuesday to celebrate the $237 million project — unfazed by a winter storm that postponed the original groundbreaking in January. Methodist Celina Medical Center will open in 2025 on 46 acres beside the Dallas North Tollway and FM428, three miles from Main Street Celina and 40 miles north of Methodist's flagship campus in Dallas.

"Though our deepest roots are in the city of Dallas’ southern sector, we are committed to growth — when it is for the right reasons," said James C. Scoggin, Jr., Chief Executive Officer, Methodist Health System. "And as we look at the boomtown of Celina and the need for a major medical facility, these are just two of many reasons we are so excited."

The hospital represents a multimillion-dollar investment in Celina, where the population has nearly tripled since 2010.

"I know that we’re surrounded by fields right now, but just wait," said Pam Stoyanoff, President and Chief Operating Officer, Methodist Health System. "In two years' time, that will change and a new, beautiful, technologically efficient hospital will open, with a stellar and dedicated team of physicians, nurses, and support staff."

Nicknamed Roller Town at the turn of the 20th century, Celina remains on a roll over a century later. It's been named the fastest-growing city in North Texas, and its population has been projected to zoom past 150,000 within the next decade.

Beyond that potential for growth, Scoggin explained why Methodist chose Celina as the home for its 13th hospital.

"Methodist is truly at its best when we are engaged with the communities we serve," Scoggin said. "We are already feeling the love."


The new hospital will offer a range of services from cardiovascular and cancer care to women's services, orthopedics, and robotic surgery. It will also feature:

  • 30 medical-surgical beds
  • 10 post-partum beds
  • Eight intensive care unit beds
  • 12 emergency department beds
  • Three operating rooms, including a da Vinci surgical robot, and shell space for an additional operating room
  • A cardiac catheterization lab and two procedure rooms
