Medical City Healthcare, one of the region’s largest and most comprehensive healthcare providers, has acquired Weatherford Regional Medical Center in Parker County. The facility, previously owned by subsidiaries of Community Health Systems, Inc. will be renamed Medical City Weatherford.
Medical City Weatherford is a 103-bed, full service hospital serving Parker County and the surrounding area. It provides a variety of services including a Level IV trauma center, labor and delivery and high level cardiac care. It is the 14th hospital in the Medical City Healthcare network.
“We are very pleased to expand our circle of care to Parker County,” says Erol Akdamar, FACHE, president of Medical City Healthcare. “Over the coming months, we will work closely with the hospital’s medical staff, employees and the community to explore ways to enhance services and expand access to specialized healthcare throughout the area.”

Over a four year period, Medical City Healthcare has invested or committed to capital improvements of more than $1.5 billion, including the acquisition of Medical City Frisco, construction of Women’s Hospitals at Medical City Arlington and Medical City Dallas and the addition of new trauma programs across the North Texas system.
