DALLAS (Business Wire) -- Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC) has opened Resolute Health Hospital in New Braunfels, Texas. The new hospital serves as the cornerstone of Resolute Health, a healthcare network in the New Braunfels area, located about 30 miles northeast of San Antonio, where the population growth of 2.5 percent annually is nearly four times the national rate.
“New Braunfels is a vibrant, rapidly growing area, and we are proud to add Resolute to Tenet's network of hospitals across the country,” said Britt T. Reynolds, president of hospital operations at Tenet.
The 365,000 square-foot hospital has 128 beds in all-private rooms and offers a broad range of specialty care, including cardiovascular, orthopedics, oncology, imaging, wound care, rehabilitation and obstetrics. In addition, Resolute Health features the only level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in the area.
Resolute Health's 56-acre “wellness” campus is designed to draw community members for needs beyond acute healthcare, with services such as a fitness center, health-oriented restaurants, walking trails and an integrative medicine center, which provides complementary therapies such as nutrition counseling, fitness instruction and lifestyle coaching. Retail shops and a women's health center are scheduled to open in the fall.
“In addition to providing high-quality acute medical care, Resolute offers a variety of innovative approaches to improve the health and well-being of the community,” said Tess Coody, chief executive officer of Resolute Health. “Our goal is to empower members of our community with the tools they need to take responsibility for their own health, and to be the provider of choice when they need acute care services.”
Resolute Health Hospital is Tenet's 79th hospital and its 19th in Texas. Last month, Tenet announced plans with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center to build a new teaching hospital in El Paso, due to open in late 2016. And earlier this month, Tenet completed the acquisition of Texas Regional Medical Center, a 70-bed hospital in Sunnyvale, Texas.
