Methodist Mansfield Medical Center turned 15 years old Dec. 27 and lit up the night sky to celebrate with the first 50 drone light show to mark the occasion. More than 200 community leaders and citizens came out to enjoy the show. Since opening its doors in 2006, Methodist Mansfield has welcomed more than 23,000 new lives into the world, performed more than 53,000 surgeries, and treated nearly 1.2 million patients. The hospital is one of the largest employers in Mansfield with nearly 1,300 nurses and employees. In addition, 256 independently practicing physicians have joined the medical staff.
Methodist Mansfield has grown from 88 beds to 262, and its medical services have expanded to include some of the latest in medical technology through innovative treatments and dozens of specialties. The hospital has also achieved Magnet® recognition, the highest distinction bestowed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to healthcare organizations for nursing excellence and high-quality patient care. The hospital is also designated a Level III Advanced Trauma Center, a Level III Neonatal Facility, and a Maternal Level III sub specialty care facility in perinatal care.
This year the hospital also joined Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing and the City of Mansfield to bring the first Texas Tech University System satellite campus to Tarrant County on the hospital’s 23-acre campus.
“It has truly been a privilege to serve our patients and families here in Mansfield and in the surrounding communities,” Methodist Mansfield President Juan Fresquez Jr. said. “We have a beautiful, patient-centered, advanced facility, but it is our dedicated people who are highly skilled and honored locally and nationally who are the heart and soul of this hospital.”
"This year to keep pace with the more than 699,000 emergency room visits and increasing number of patients who place their trust in us, we will be adding new employees and new physicians to our medical staff and expanding our services,” Juan Fresquez said. “And we look forward to being a part of the health of this community for many years to come.”
