Methodist Health System Masterplan

Dallas/Tarrant/Collin Counties, Texas

3.7 M SF on 4 major Methodist campuses, 3 new regional locations and the New Oak Cliff Medical District

Methodist Health System (MHS) in Dallas, Texas embarked on a three-year strategic plan starting in 2008 that began to transform the way the system has historically approached growth and expansion. Parallel to and in coordination with that effort, BOKA Powell has lead the Facility Master Planning (FMP) Process. The result has been an MHS “Centennial Plan” for 2027 which will position the system for growth and to be a leader in providing healthcare services in the D/FW marketplace.

The FMP process followed three major concepts:
– Improve utilization & efficiency for MHS campuses within their existing facilities
– Separate & consolidate outpatient vs. inpatient vs. support components
– Increase efficiency for public and staff by improving campus way-finding & circulation
– Identify additional opportunities for growth outside of existing facilities

The vision for the Methodist Dallas campus includes creation of a medical district, a healthcare –centered mixed use gateway into South Dallas/Oak Cliff. The plan began with proposed growth of inpatient services within the existing facility footprint, including movement of outpatient and public services off the main campus and improved utilization of existing hospital space. Movement of outpatient services off campus not only allowed for growth of inpatient services and improved flow for patients, staff and visitors, but also inspired the vision for campus expansion into a mixed use Medical District.
