Fort Worth Star-Telegram, March 21, 2008
JPS Hospital has unveiled its new five-story patient tower that is the first major addition to the taxpayer-supported hospital's main Fort Worth, TX, campus since 1991. The tower's amenities include 108 private patient rooms with computers and advanced medical equipment mounted on the ceiling. There are also twelve operating suites, each outfitted with a 42-inch plasma screen and multiple cameras that can wirelessly send video feeds to other parts of the hospital. JPS is spending about $93 million on the tower and a seven-level parking garage.
