Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth is a 720-bed facility serving a population of over 2.5 million. Located in the Medical District, Texas Health Fort Worth is a regional referral center for 26 counties, with transfers and referrals from as far away as El Paso, Texas and parts of Oklahoma. It has a census of about 600 patients per day and 27 ORs. This facility is presently a Level II Trauma Center, but is working toward a Level I designation. Texas Health Fort Worth has a robust emergency department with more than 90,000 visits and an active call schedule. There are nine active neurosurgeons representing two groups, as well as a developing third group. The neurosurgeons do about 1,600 neurosurgery cases at the hospital, excluding back and spine. There is a two-month wait for new patients to be seen. This, along with population growth in surrounding communities of Tarrant County, indicates a great need for additional neurosurgeons in this city.

Fort Worth is the 16th-largest city in the United States and welcomes over 6 million visitors annually. The unique blend of cowboy and cosmopolitan cultures make the city of Fort Worth a great place to work and play, for families and young professionals alike.
