Work starts on Arlington hospital

The new hospital will open near I-20 next June.

An Alabama-based medical property developer is building a new hospital in Arlington
Sanders Trust said Wednesday that it’s started work on the $16 million Texas Rehabilitation Hospital just off of Interstate 20 near The Parks at Arlington.

The 48,000-square-foot, 40-bed hospital will serve patients who require rehabilitation following a stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or similar medical conditions.

The building will open next summer and will be leased to Nashville-based Centerre Healthcare Corp., Texas Health Resources and Methodist Health System. Centerre will operate the new hospital.

Byrne Construction Services of Fort Worth is the general contractor for the project and Nashville-based Earl Swensson Associates is handling design.

Developer Sanders Trust has built or acquired more than 60 medical properties in 18 states.
