Robins & Morton breaks ground on replacement hospital for Wadley Regional Medical Center

Construction firm Robins & Morton and Steward Health Care have begun work on the Wadley Regional Medical Center replacement hospital in Texarkana, Texas.

Construction will include a 250,000-square-foot hospital and a 160,000-square-foot medical office building, totaling 410,000 square feet of new patient care space on the campus. The new facilities will offer a full range of services including a 24-hour emergency room with expanded bed capacity, orthopedics, outpatient, cardiovascular, neurology, and maternity care. The hospital will have 123 beds with the ability to expand to 291.

Wadley Regional Medical Center expects that that construction of the new hospital combined with the ongoing impact of the hospital’s employee base will result in a total economic impact of $408 million in the two-county Texarkana service area.

“Wadley Regional Medical Center has a long history of service in this community, and we’re excited to do our part in building a new, state-of-the-art facility for them,” Robins & Morton senior superintendent Jeff Jones said.

General contractor Robins & Morton will complete the $254 million project over three years, concluding in December 2025. ESa will serve as the architect.
