HCA to buy Texas hospital from Community Health

July 11, 2017

HCA Healthcare (NYSE: HCA) today announced an agreement to acquire Weatherford Regional Medical Center outside Fort Worth, Texas, from subsidiaries of Community Health Systems, Inc.

Upon completion of the transaction, Weatherford Regional Medical Center, a 103-bed hospital about 30 miles west of Fort Worth, would become part of HCA’s Medical City Healthcare in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

“Weatherford Regional has a longstanding tradition of caring for its community and will complement our existing provider network in North Texas,” said Sam Hazen, president and chief operating officer of HCA. “The addition of Weatherford Regional to our Medical City Healthcare family will help us improve patient access in the Fort Worth area.”

With 13 hospitals, more than 7,000 active physicians and 14,000 employees in Dallas-Fort Worth, HCA’s Medical City Healthcare is one of the North Texas region’s largest and most comprehensive health care provider networks. Three Medical City Healthcare hospitals are accredited comprehensive stroke centers, and five hospitals hold the prestigious Magnet Recognized® status from the American Nurses Association.

The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals and other closing conditions, is expected to close by the fall of 2017.
