Why Choose Baylor Scott & White – Plano? 

From the moment our concierge greets you at the front entrance, it’s easy to see why Baylor Scott & White - Plano is a great choice. Here are some of the reasons to seek your cancer care here: 


As a cancer program, our awards and accreditations truly set us apart—both in Collin County and in Texas.  

Our Accreditation with Commendation by the Commission on Cancer demonstrates that we are committed to offering every significant advantage in your battle against cancer. 


When it comes to fighting cancer, experience makes a big difference in survival. Here, colorectal surgeons treat colon cancer, thoracic surgeons treat lung cancer and so on. Additionally, we: 

  • Treat more head and neck cancers than anyone in the metroplex
  • Have pulmonology and gastroenterology groups that are among the largest in the metroplex
  • Have regular tumor board meetings to review difficult cases and recommend treatment
  • Have oncology-certified nurses 


At Baylor Scott & White - Plano, we employ advanced technologies to help detect and treat cancer. These include the: 

  • Spyglass® Direct Visualization System, a tiny catheter-guided camera that provides precise images for an accurate diagnosis of GI cancers
  • da Vinci® S Surgical System, a robotic, camera-guided technology that increases precision for delicate or complex surgeries for prostate, gynecologic or colon cancer
  • MammoSite, a short-term, high-dose localized radiation that allows breast cancer patients to get back to their lives more quickly
  • superDimension® lung navigation, a minimally invasive technology that uses GPS-like navigation to reach deep into the lungs for biopsy
  • ATS, or video-assisted thoracic surgery, a minimally invasive, camera-guided tool for lung tumor removal 


Even though we treat hundreds of cancer patients, we are always mindful of this fact: You are the most important patient we have right now 

Today, everyone seems to emphasize personal care, but we actually deliver it. From pairing you with a cancer survivor for support to using your own cancer cells to personalize chemotherapy in clinical trials, we don’t just care for you. We care about you. 

Clinical Trial Access

In 2010, approximately 7 percent of our patients were included in clinical trials and research studies. 

In partnership with the Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center, Baylor Scott & White - Plano also offers Phase 1 and Phase II trials, which are the earliest-stage clinical trials testing new treatments, drugs or devices on people. Most community hospitals do not have the skill or resources to conduct Phase 1 and Phase II studies. 

Nurse Navigator

Before, during and after breast cancer treatment, our full-time oncology Nurse Navigator provides a single point of contact who will be with you every step of the way. 

Convenience and Comfort

We want you to get better, and we know that’s easier if you’re close to home. From diagnosis and treatment through support and survivorship, you’ll find everything you need on one convenient campus. 

We also remember the simple things. Our rooms feature hardwood floors, ample lighting and flat screen TVs. Family members can unwind or check e-mail in our library or on their own personal laptop via our free Visitor’s Wireless Network, available throughout the hospital.
