Cook Children’s has agreed to build a 12,000-square-foot medical and dental clinic in the Renaissance Square development in Southeast Fort Worth, an important addition to the long-underserved area’s health care offerings.
The planned $7 million facility, to be at the southeast corner of East Berry Street and Mitchell Boulevard, will be Cook’s sixth clinic, but the first to combine medical, dental and behavioral health, Larry Tubb, Sr., a Cook Children’s Health Care System vice president, said.
The goal: “Allowing families to access all of these (services) in one location and providing a more holistic approach to improving the health of children,” Tubb said.
Cook’s entry follows on the developers’ aggressive push to secure the YMCA Fort Worth, which wants to consolidate its two Southeast branches into a newly built one in Renaissance.
