Building a Healthy Community - Together
To be a catalyst for access to quality health care through partnerships that will improve the health of our communities. We wisely manage our resources to collaborate and support organizations that provide education, prevention, early detection and treatment programs with evidence-based models and measurable results.
To help create an environment where the highest quality healthcare is available to the entire community at every stage of life.
Building on a tradition of providing quality health care facilities to our communities, the Metrocrest Hospital Authority (MHA) is dedicated to enabling health services including education, prevention, early detection and treatment.
Carrollton Regional Medical Center
Carrollton Regional Medical Center is a 216-bed acute care medical center with 338,000 square feet located on 14.31 acres. Metrocrest Hospital Authority also owns three medical office buildings on the 53.35-acre campus. Established in 1985, Carrollton Regional Medical Center provides a broad spectrum of medical and healthcare services to the people of North Dallas and surrounding communities.
The medical office buildings (MOB’s) at Carrollton Regional Medical Center comprise three separate buildings. Plaza 1 and 2 was purchased by Metrocrest Hospital Authority in February 2003 from the Trinity Professional Physicians Association (TPPA). Plaza 1 is a three-story building built in 1985 with rentable square footage of 48,983. Plaza 2 is also a three-story building, built in 1987, with 15 physician offices and rentable square footage of 48,915. Plaza 3 was built with bond funds in 1989 and has 52,000 square feet.
Atria Retirement and Assisted Living Center
Atria Retirement and Assisted Living Center opened in 1999 and offers various levels of living assistance not requiring nursing skills. In addition, Atria has a unit devoted to Alzheimer patients.
A sense of place, companionship, comfort, security and belonging is what elder residents find at Atria. The Atria communities offer assisted living, retirement living and special programs for people with Alzheimer's disease or other memory disorders in a nurturing environment. The facility is ground-leased.
Brookhaven Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
The skilled nursing facility, Brookhaven Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, relocated to Carrollton Regional Medical Center February 1986. This facility expanded its licensure to 180 beds, is located in a free-standing building, and is owned and operated by Dynasty Healthcare Management, LLC. The facility also provides expanded recreational and occupational therapy.
The facility occupies a 5.8 tract directly north of Carrollton Regional Medical Center. The facility is ground-leased for 30 years from Metrocrest Hospital Authority.
The Pediatric Place was formerly Easter Seals. The Easter Seals building was purchased by MHA in 2003 for future medical office space. It is a one-story building with approximately 30,000 square feet. At this time Easter Seals society is occupying 12,000 square feet.
The building was then renovated on the outside and the name was changed to reflect a "pediatric environment." The building is leased to pediatric physicians and a pediatric dentist and Easter Seals.
It is managed by the MHA management staff.
On March 7, 2002 MHA purchased a building, formally Aetna, from Remington Partners, Inc. The building is part of the lease agreement with Sana Healthcare.
MHA is governed by a volunteer board representing the communities it serves.
Through the collective assistance of a competent, 10 member, without-pay Board of Directors, an effective hospital administration team, and high quality professional staff, the Authority strives to achieve its goal of ensuring the establishment and maintenance of the highest quality health care for its communities.

The Metrocrest Hospital Authority (MHA) was created in December 1975 by the City of Farmers Branch under Chapter 262 of the Texas Health and Safety Code, The Texas Municipal Hospital Authority Act
The original name of the Authority was the Farmers Branch Hospital Authority. The Metrocrest name was chosen in the late 1980s to better represent all the communities the Authority serves, including North Dallas, Farmers Branch, Carrollton, Coppell, Addison and The Colony.
The Authority is a political subdivision of the State of Texas and a unit of local government. It has the power of eminent domain and enjoys sovereign immunity.
The primary mission of the Authority is to create a quality healthcare environment for both providers and users and to ensure that the Authority can meet the health care needs in the communities it serves.
