Children’s Health plans new medical campus on the tollway in Prosper | Real Estate | Dallas News
Dallas-based Children’s Health is headed to Prosper with a new medical campus.
The pediatric health provider and hospital firm has purchased 72 acres at the Dallas North Tollway and U.S. Highway 380 for the new facility.
The planned medical center will be part of developer Matthews Southwest’s 177-acre mixed-use development on the north side of U.S. 380 in Prosper.
“Prosper is regionally significant and integral to the long-term strategy of Children’s Health,” Jeremiah Radandt, executive vice president of the northern market for Children’s Health, said in a statement. “We have always sought-after the best ways to serve and invest in the community.
“By building this unique medical campus, we are broadening how we bring health care to North Texans, and better serving the needs of our patients for the future.”
Children’s Health said it plans to hire a developer to partner on the project.
A preliminary plan for the development shows an architectural rendering of multiple buildings. Dallas architect HKS designed the project.
Children’s Health is one of the 10 largest pediatric health care providers in the nation.
In 2008 Children’s Health opened the first phase of a major medical center in Plano.
The healthcare provider says its new Prosper campus will serve surrounding areas of Collin and Denton counties with pediatric health care “as well as to develop an array of corporate, hospitality and retail products to create a community medical campus.”
Texas Health and Baylor Scott & White already have smaller medical facilities in Prosper.
And Texas Scottish Rite Hospital has a new 40-acre medical campus on the tollway in Frisco.
“Children’s Health is one of the region’s most respected and distinguished health care providers, and the town of Prosper is excited it has made a commitment to our community,” Prosper Mayor Ray Smith said in a statement. “We look forward to a long-term relationship with Children’s Health.
“The project will offer high quality health care for our younger residents as well as the benefit of high-end commercial development at one of Prosper’s key intersections for economic growth.”
Children’s Health recently announced a 10-year sponsorship with Prosper Independent School District as its official pediatric healthcare provider.
