Community members celebrated the opening of Medical City ER Haslet, a department of Medical City Alliance, with a ribbon cutting and $5,000 donation to the Haslet Fire Department. The off-campus emergency room officially opened November 1 near the corner of Highway 287 and Avondale-Haslet Road. 

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Monday, Oct. 31, featuring Medical City Alliance CEO Glenn Wallace, Haslet Mayor Gary Hulsey, Chief Kirt Mays with Haslet Fire Department, Sally Aldridge, President and CEO of the Metroport Chamber of Commerce and other community representatives. On behalf of Medical City ER Haslet, Wallace also presented a $5,000 donation to Haslet Fire Chief Kirt Mays to support the city’s fire and rescue efforts. 

Staffed with board-certified emergency physicians, the full-service emergency room will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will offer the same level of care found in a traditional ER, conveniently located in Haslet, a city that does not currently have a community hospital. Medical City ER Haslet will serve the rapidly expanding communities of Haslet, Rhome, Avondale, Newark, Pecan Acres and surrounding neighborhoods. 

The facility was constructed in an existing building that underwent $5.1 million in renovations and upgrades. 

Medical City ER Haslet features:

  • 5,781 square feet
  • Seven private exam rooms
  • On-site imaging services
  • Complete medical laboratory
  • Specialized pediatric care and pediatric-friendly exam rooms 

“We are pleased to bring advanced emergency care to this growing area of north Tarrant County, backed by the expertise and resources of the Medical City Healthcare system,” says Glenn Wallace, CEO of Medical City Alliance and Medical City ER Haslet. “Patients will have access to high-quality, convenient care closer to home, with seamless admission to Medical City Alliance, should a higher level of care or inpatient services be required." 

Medical City ER Haslet is the second off-campus ER operated by Medical City Alliance. Medical City ER Saginaw has served Saginaw and surrounding communities since November 2016. 

Medical City ER Haslet is part of Medical City Healthcare’s major capital investment initiative of more than $1.1 billion spent or committed over five years across the Medical City Healthcare system. Investments include expansion and improvements to existing hospitals, new services such as trauma, oncology and behavioral healthcare, upgraded technology and the purchase and construction of new facilities.
