By HFT Staff

Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth has opened the Jane and John Justin Tower. The opening caps a more than two-year, $300 million construction project that adds 400,000 square feet to the hospital. The nine-story tower, which includes 144 beds, 15 surgery suites, and new pre- and postoperative suites services, is the largest construction project in Texas Health history. 

Justin Tower will increase surgical capacity by almost 30 percent, with dedicated neurosurgery and orthopedics operating suites. The surgical suites are twice the size of existing ORs to accommodate modern robotic and imaging technology and are sized to accommodate even larger equipment in the future. 

In addition to the ORs, additional elements of Justin Tower were built with an eye to the future. All patient rooms are private and can be modified to provide varying levels of care, from general medical-surgical to critical care. Additional design elements include the use of natural light, patient-friendly wayfinding and indoor and outdoor spaces for visitors.
