MedStar to be headquartered on west side of Fort Worth


MedStar has purchased the former Fort Worth Nissan auto dealership at 2900 Alta Mere Drive and has begin renovations to the 60,000-square-foot, 10-acre facility to convert it into the new headquarters for MedStar Mobile Healthcare.

“The investment in this property and location is an investment in MedStar’s future,” said MedStar Executive Director Doug Hooten in a news release. “This facility will be designed to meet the needs of MedStar – and the community we are honored to serve — for the next 30 years.”

MedStar has operated out of its current 30,000-square-foot location at 551 E. Berry Street since it began serving the city in April 1986.

The plans for the new facility include an expanded call center to meet the rising needs for not only 911 services, but also MedStar’s growing mobile health care services, including its nurse triage and community health programs.

Cost of the building and renovation is estimated to be $8 million. The project is expected to be completed by January 2014.
