Cook Children’s Health Care System and JPS Health Network recently broke ground on the Las Vegas Trail Neighborhood Health Center, for which Vaughn serves as construction manager-at-risk. The two-story, 37,000 SF center, located at the corner of Calmont Avenue and Cherry Lane, will include Cook Children’s ninth neighborhood health center, a new JPS medical home, a food pantry, and onsite job training.
“When we look at where to open a neighborhood clinic, we consider where we can make the biggest impact based on a number of factors, including current and future population growth, existing resources in the area, socio-economic status, and ER utilization from the particular zip codes we’re considering,” said Veronica Tolley, vice president of Primary and Specialty Services at Cook Children’s. “We’ve evaluated placing a clinic in Las Vegas Trail for some time. Once the land was gifted, it all came together for a really unique partnership that is the first of its kind for Cook Children’s.”
The center will provide pediatric and adult medical, behavioral health, and social services to the Las Vegas Trail neighborhood. With the clinic's launch, Cook Children’s and JPS hope to tackle the healthcare desert on the west side of Fort Worth.
The center is slated to reach substantial completion in spring 2025.
