Methodist Hospital – Cannon

The main building of this hospital complex opened in 1930 as Methodist Hospital, largely through the efforts of Dr. Charles Houston Harris, founder of an earlier hospital in Fort Worth. Funds were raised through public subscription under the auspices of the Central Texas Conference of the Methodist Church. The original nine-story radial-plan hospital was designed by Wiley G. Clarkson and built by Butcher & Sweeney. New facilities were added in 1961 and 1968, and portions of the original plant have been remodeled. The hospital, now in the midst of a building campaign, is the largest in Tarrant County. The hospital complex has expanded greatly over the last two decades but portions of the original hospital building are still visible.
