Cook Children's closes on Renaissance Square site

Cook Children’s has closed on a 1.3-acre site in the fast-growing Renaissance Square development in southeast Fort Worth, and is beginning construction this month on a 12,000-square-foot medical, dental and behavioral clinic, the hospital said Wednesday.

Kristin Peaks, spokeswoman for Cook Children’s, said the clinic expects to see its first patients “on or before” Sept. 30.

The addition of the clinic is viewed as an important addition to the long-underserved area’s health care offerings.

The $7 million facility, at the southeast corner of East Berry Street and Mitchell Boulevard, will be Cook’s sixth clinic, but the first to combine medical, dental and behavioral health. The Morris Foundation of Fort Worth made the lead gift to open the clinic.
