Southlake Methodist Medical Center is on track to open an expanded emergency room later this year.

Methodist Health System officials broke ground in November on the 4,000-square-foot expansion, which will quadruple the size of the current emergency room, according to a hospital press release. The extra room will also mean a larger waiting area for patients and expanded diagnostic capabilities, the statement said.

“This project is one of many key investments Methodist Health System is making in Southlake this year as we strive to be families’ trusted choice for health and wellness,” said Jim Scoggin, CEO of Methodist Health System, in the release.

The expansion is part of the hospital’s effort to become a full-service acute care hospital after being added to Methodist Health System as a wholly-owned facility in June 2021, the statement said.

“The expansion of the emergency department and the growth of Methodist Southlake Medical Center is important to me professionally, but it’s also important to me personally,” said Pamela Stoyanoff, president and chief operating officer of Methodist Health System, in the press release. “I have lived in Southlake for almost 14 years now, and my husband, Mike, and I raised our children here. I know how special this city is and how much the families of Northeast Tarrant County deserve the compassionate, quality health care provided by Methodists.

The emergency room remains open to patients during construction, which is expected to be completed by the end of August, according to hospital officials.

Methodist Southlake Medical Center is the 11th hospital in North Texas for the Methodist Health System.
