Robins & Morton and Steward Health Care have begun the construction of the replacement hospital for Wadley Regional Medical Center in Texarkana, Texas.
The Birmingham-headquartered general contractor will build a 250,000-square-foot hospital and a 160,000-square-foot medical office building. The new facilities will offer a full range of services including 24-hour emergency room with expanded bed capacity, orthopedics, outpatient, cardiovascular, neurology and maternity care. The hospital will have 123 beds to start with the ability to expand to 291 beds in the future.
“Wadley Regional Medical Center has a long history of service in this community, and we’re excited to do our part in building a new, state-of-the-art facility for them,” said Jeff Jones, senior superintendent for Robins & Morton.
The $254 million project will take more than three years to build, concluding in December 2025. ESa will serve as the architect on the project.
Robins & Morton has offices in Birmingham and Huntsville, Alabama; Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; Dallas and San Antonio, Texas; Miami, Orlando and Tampa, Florida; and Nashville, Tennessee.
