JPS Health Network has dedicated itself to caring for our community for more than a century. As the public healthcare system for Tarrant County in North Texas, our mission is at the heart of all we do. The network is anchored by an acute care hospital licensed for 537 beds and is the county's first and only Level I Trauma Center. A commitment to the underserved in our community is a passion and our team members exemplify compassionate care that is patient and family-centered.
