MedStar Breaks Ground on New Headquarters

Press Release Jan 31, 2013

Fort Worth, TX - January 29, 2013 MedStar has purchased the former Fort Worth Nissan auto dealership at 2900 Alta Mere Drive and on Friday, February 1, 2013, will begin renovations to the 60,000 square foot, 10-acre facility to convert it into the new headquarters for MedStar Mobile Healthcare.

MedStar has operated out of its current location at 551 E. Berry Street since its inception in April 1986, consisting of 30,000 square feet of space on a 3 acre site.

“The investment in this property and location is an investment in MedStar’s future” states MedStar Executive Director Doug Hooten. “This facility will be designed to meet the needs of MedStar—and the community we are honored to serve—for the next 30 years.”

The plans for the new facility include an expanded call center to meet the rising needs for not only 9-1-1 services, but also MedStar’s growing mobile healthcare services including its nurse triage and community health programs. 

Fort Worth City Council Member and Chairman of MedStar’s Board Zim Zimmerman explains, “MedStar’s decision to make this significant investment in our community demonstrates its commitment to Fort Worth and the 14 other member cities that together comprise the MedStar system.” 

Cost of the building and renovation construction is estimated to be $8 million and anticipated to be completed by January 2014.
