After several years of setbacks and delays, Baptist Memorial Health Care Corp. should begin construction this summer on the Arlington ER facility. It will be located  near the Interstate 40 and the Arlington exit.

The freestanding location, developed in partnership with Regional One Health, will feature eight patient rooms; CT scan, X-ray and ultrasound imaging technology; physician offices and a helipad. Construction should take about a year with the tentative opening date for completion by April 2022.

“As we think about April 2022, we’re very hopeful that this will come online right at a right time, as we’re administering (COVID) vaccine and taking precautions,” said Zach Chandler, Baptist executive vice president and chief strategy officer, expressing optimism that life could return to normal at that time.
