The Dallas Regional Chamber recognized the new Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Flower Mound Friday with a 2010 Corporate Location Momentum Award.
The Momentum Awards recognize companies that have made a positive impact on the economy through job growth, location, and expansion, and have contributed to the vitality of the DFW Metroplex.
Flower Mound’s Economic Development Division nominated the hospital in the “Corporate Location: New/Other Facility” category, which recognizes businesses that have located or expanded their operations to the Dallas region.
“The new hospital is a perfect fit for our healthy community and is quickly proving to be an economic driver for our vision of making Flower Mound a medical destination for southern Denton County,” said Flower Mound Mayor Melissa Northern.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital was chosen for its employment of more than 300 people and generation of additional medical-related development. The facility opened in April.
The award was presented at the Momentum Dallas Ceremony and Awards Luncheon on Friday, Nov. 12. The Dallas Regional Chamber promotes regional prosperity through public policy, economic development and member engagement.
“We are quite honored to receive this award from the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce. This is especially nice for our community as it creates a number of care-related synergies. The economic impact of what we are doing here is really just beginning,” said Rick Carter, President of THPHFM.
“Having local access to a high level of healthcare has been a long time wish for the communities we serve. We are honored to fill this healthcare need that has existed for many years, and look forward to providing top notch care for our residents right here at home.”
The Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Flower Mound is a four-story, 103-bed, 185,000-square-foot facility. The facility has more than 400 physicians on staff and offers surgical services, a fully functional emergency room that is open 24/7, an intensive care unit, labor and delivery services, full radiology and imaging services, cardiology services, and a full service café. Created with the environment in mind, it also received a design award from Modern Healthcare.
