Ground was broken Wednesday on Wise Health Surgical Hospital near Argyle.
The 44,782 square-foot, single-story facility at I-35W and Crawford Rd. in Denton, about a mile from Robson Ranch, will focus on orthopedics and spine surgery with six surgical suites and 12 patient beds.
With the orthopedic concentration, it will have a full complement of imaging services, including a CT scanner, MRI, X-rays and separate exam rooms.
There will also be an on-site emergency area with two treatment rooms that have the capabilities necessary to stabilize a patient for transfer to a hospital.
Several medical office buildings will eventually be built near the hospital.
The hospital is expected to open in fall 2017.
