Mercy Clinic of Fort Worth has announced the acquisition of ownership of the Berry Street Theater.
The acquisition is part of the Fort Worth Mercy Clinic’s Vision 2020 campaign, said Peggy Leitch, Managing Director. The Mercy Clinic Board of Directors strategically envisioned a state-of-the-art medical and dental clinic to meet the health care needs of medically needy people in the community. The purchase of three lots adjacent to the theater in 2016 was the first step in this journey. The Vision 2020 campaign takes another step forward with the purchase of the Berry Street Theater and nearby vacant land thanks to the generosity of Mercy Clinic donors.
The future home of the Mercy Clinic in Fort Worth is planned for the site next to the theater. The theater will be a hub for community ministries to those in need not only in the immediate vicinity, but also for individuals throughout the city of Fort Worth, according to Mercy Clinic. The additional property will provide parking for both buildings. “We see this as an opportunity to contribute to healthier communities through compassionate care,” said Leitch.
Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford is the architect of the project and Baird, Hampton & Brown is the engineer.
