When Will Texarkana’s New Wadley Regional Medical Center be Ready to Open?
It's almost time to start the construction of the new Wadley Regional Medical Center Hospital. Steward Health Care recently signed a contract with Robins & Morton for the
construction of the replacement facility for Wadley Regional Medical Center.
This new construction will include the Medical Center plus a Medical Office Building. The new Wadley Regional Medical Center. The new Wadley will be located off I-30 at the corner of University Avenue and West Park Boulevard in Texarkana.
Thomas Gilbert, president of Wadley Regional Medical Center stated in a press release;
“We are excited to have the health care experience of Robins & Morton as the general contractor for our new hospital. Our new facility will improve access for our entire service area.”
Wadley Regional Medical Center has been serving Texarkana and the surrounding areas for more than 122 years.
The new hospital will bring more jobs and therefore more employees. With that growth, there is an expected economic impact of $408 million for Texarkana.
The new Wadley Regional Medical Center will have a full range of hospital services. An emergency room that will be open 24/7, there will also be a larger bed capacity starting with 123 beds but will be able to expand that capacity to 291 beds. We can also expect an orthopedics department, a cardiovascular area, neurosurgery plus maternity and a number of outpatient services.
So, when will the new facility be open for patients? We won't have to wait to long because the project is expected to be completed in late 2025. That will be here before you know it!
