Baylor Medical Center at Frisco 

Opened in 2002 as Frisco Medical Center, Baylor Medical Center at Frisco is a model health care facility designed with the patient in mind. The 68-bed hospital has a hotel-like atmosphere, creating a comfortable, relaxing and patient-friendly environment with a focus on service and hospitality. From the gourmet food service to the private patient suites, Baylor Medical Center at Frisco has created a "culture of care" for its guests.

To better serve the growing communities of Collin County, Baylor Frisco recently underwent a $62 million expansion of the facility. The first floor expansion includes a new expanded lobby, additional operating rooms, treatment rooms for pain management and gastrointestinal procedures, additional patient beds, and an expanded emergency room and laboratory, as well as a new kitchen and dining area. Additional pre-operative, post-operative and step-down beds were added as well. Also included in the first floor expansion is a technologically advanced medical education facility, complete with a teaching laboratory. On the second floor of the hospital, a Women's Center was added—a new service line for Baylor Frisco.

Highlights

New Women's Center

In July 2007, Baylor Medical Center at Frisco opened its new Women's Center expanding its services to include obstetrics and gynecology. The $20 million, 40,000 square-foot labor and delivery unit is located on the second floor of the hospital's new expansion and includes nine labor and delivery suites, 15 postpartum suites, eight antepartum suites, a three-bed recovery suite, three operating rooms, a 16-bed newborn nursery and an eight bed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Each suite has its own flat panel television and customized furniture to look like home rather than a hospital room. In addition, the suites feature a specialized camera system where nurses and other medical staff can monitor patients, especially those who need additional observation. The camera system also offers a web-cam component for patients who wish to communicate with friends and family members. All newborn babies are monitored by an ankle bracelet with internal GPS capabilities and an alarm system to prevent babies from being taken outside of the unit without properly being discharged. The new Women's Center offers a full range of childbirth education classes and special amenities for new parents such as celebration dinners and personalized gifts commemorating the birth of their child.

 

Integrated Surgical Suites

Surgeons on the medical staff at Baylor Frisco now have the ability to transmit audio and video of their surgical procedures to physicians around the world thanks to a new communications system installed in 11 of the hospital's operating rooms. The new fully integrated surgical suites are equipped with an advanced audio/ visual system installed in the lights and surgical equipment that allow surgeons to consult with other physicians, demonstrate procedures or even communicate with each other during surgical procedures at Baylor Frisco.

 

Medical Education Facility

In May 2007, Baylor Medical Center at Frisco opened a medical education center as part of the hospital's expansion. The education center serves as a teaching facility for surgeons to demonstrate the latest surgical procedures to physicians both locally and nationwide. The center includes a 335-square-foot teaching lab and a 476-square-foot auditorium. The center is also equipped with capabilities to transmit the demonstrations and seminars via the Internet.

Community Programs

Community programs provided by Baylor Frisco serve to help people get healthy and stay healthy. Baylor Frisco hosts an annual health fair to provide free screenings and health information to the community and is an active supporter of the Frisco Family Services Center. For clients of the center, Baylor Frisco provides monthly meals, clothes and shoes for school children, Thanksgiving dinners, gifts during the holidays and sponsors the center's annual golf tournament fundraiser. Baylor Frisco also supports health care education in Collin County and is involved with the Frisco Independent School District's Health Careers program, Brookhaven College's student radiology program and Collin County Community College's student nursing program. In addition, Baylor Frisco holds free community education seminars to educate the community about options available for prevention and treatment of various medical conditions as well as new procedures and services offered at Baylor Frisco.
