JPS Health Network, Fort Worth, Texas, plans to close Tuesday on a deal to buy 30-bed Physicians' Metroplex Hospital, Arlington, Texas, for $14.7 million. JPS, part of Tarrant County (Texas) Hospital District, agreed to buy the hospital from investment firm Unity Hunt, Dallas, a JPS spokeswoman said. The hospital was opened early in 2003 in partnership with physicians and hospital operator Leland Medical Centers, Plano, Texas. Leland reduced the hospital's operations to emergency room-only in August. Executives for Unity Hunt and Leland weren't available for comment at deadline. -- by Paul Barr
