For 90 years, Hendrick Medical Center has been the first name in healthcare in Abilene and the Texas Midwest. The present campus includes a 522-bed medical center, a women’s center, rehabilitation hospital, cancer center, and numerous other innovative services. More than 3,000 staff members encompass HMC’s team of employees.

With continuing property acquisition and proposed expansion of the campus, HMC retained the planning team of Gossman Group and DCBA Landscape Architecture to develop concepts for future development, basically concentrating on four areas. The primary task for the design team was to 1) develop stronger gateway entries, 2) improve vehicular and pedestrian connectivity, and 3) generally enrich the campus experience.

Top priority for HMC is to create a new entry leading through new land acquisition on the eastern sector of the campus. This area has frequent flooding of streets during high rain events. DCBA developed a concept for this area which included options for street re-routing, future building pad options, and a new entry development combined with proposed detention ponds to solve the flooding problems.

Previously featured as “In Progress” in our April 2016 newsletter, Phase 1 of Mustang Lakes master-planned community is now complete in Celina, Texas. DCBA designed the signage, monuments, and open space amenities as well as did the planning for The Club, the largest amenity center in the DFW area with pools, event lawn, tennis courts, playground, trails, and a 5-acre lake with a unique island.

Matt Alexander, Vice President with the Cambridge Companies, says “we have sold more than 200 lots since opening in July 2016. Much of the success of Mustang Lakes can be attributed to the beautiful outdoor environment created by DCBA throughout the community and around our unique Amenity Center utilizing their innovative and creative approach to landscape design.”

DCBA continues to be a leader in the residential development market with current projects in Frisco, Prosper, McKinney, Irving, and Fort Worth.
