Collin County Is Exploding in Growth

Celina, Texas

An economic boom continues in northern Collin County.

A groundbreaking Tuesday afternoon celebrated the arrival of a new hospital while a growing number of large retailers show interest in small communities with major growth projections.

Methodist Health System hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for its new $200 million hospital being built along the Dallas North Tollway in Celina.

City and hospital leaders were on hand to talk about the project that is expected to be finished over two years.
NBC 5 asked Methodist Health System CEO Jim Scoggin about the decision to build a hospital in Celina.

“If you look at the growth in Celina, it’s second to none to any place else. There’s not a hospital within Celina so it’s about meeting the need,” said Scoggin.

Celina mayor Sean Terry says the addition of a hospital has been a goal for the city for about a decade.

Terry reports building permits last month were higher than the same time last year and sales tax is up almost 105%.
