Texas Health Resources to open outpatient facility in Burleson

Texas Health Resources, one of the largest faith-based, nonprofit health care systems in the United States and the largest in North Texas in terms of patients served, will open a 53,000 square foot outpatient center on Thursday in Burleson.

The eight-acre campus, located at 2750 S.W. Wilshire Blvd. in Burleson, will offer primary care, specialty care, ancillary and preventative care to residents in the Burleson, Cleburne, Crowley, Joshua and surrounding areas.

Services offered will include women’s diagnostic testing, imaging services, outpatient rehabilitation for general, sports and hand therapy, cardiac rehabilitation, laboratory services and a fitness center, which will feature a three-lane lap pool, child care center, group fitness classes and personal training.

Plans also call for a free-standing emergency room to be opened in September.

“Texas Health Burleson caters to residents who are accustomed to driving to another city for medical care,” said Rebecca Tucker, facility director, in a statement. “This campus provides patients access to the same quality in care they have come to expect from the Texas Health Resources system.”

Texas Health Burleson will have the first high-field open magnetic resonance imaging system in North Texas.

Hospital officials said the high-field open MRI produces images comparable to a high-field, closed MRI but with increased comfort for the patient who suffers from claustrophobia.

“We’re pleased to offer this advanced diagnostic tool, the first of its kind in the community, which will help ease some of the discomforts patients experience with a closed-environment MRI,” said Joseph DeLeon, vice president of business development, in a statement.

The facility has attracted physicians practicing in medical specialties such as family practice, ophthalmology, obstetrics and gynecology, cardiology, orthopedics, and gastroenterology.

“Providing quality and leading-edge care in a convenient location was our goal for this facility,” Tucker said. “These physicians are bringing needed medical expertise into the community so patients do not have to travel far for care,”

The new facility will hold a grand opening event from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday with facility tours, information booths, fitness center membership sign ups, games, entertainment, giveaways, snacks and a visit from the Easter bunny.
