Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth is a 707-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.

Sorry, our opportunities cannot sponsor a J-1 visa waiver and this position is not open to outside recruiting firms.

Physicians employed by Texas Health Physicians Group are not employed by a Texas Health Resources hospital.
