Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital 

Dedicated to Cancer Care

Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital has been designed to provide a place of healing, calming and spirituality for everyone involved in the cancer journey. The surroundings are attractive, and well-designed rooms are larger to accommodate family members. Additional amenities have been introduced to ensure the environment is attractive and convenient.

Alan M. Miller, MD, PhD, chief of oncology, Baylor Health Care System, and medical director, Baylor Sammons Cancer Center, commented about the stress undergone by patients who are thrust into unfamiliar surroundings: “The more that can be done to ease the strangeness and discomfort of the surroundings, the easier it is for patients to concentrate on what they need to do to get well.”

Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital, the first dedicated cancer hospital in North Texas and only the second in the state, is part of the expansion of oncology services at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas. Learn more by watching these videos.

Oncology Evaluation and Treatment Center

The Oncology Evaluation and Treatment Center, on the first floor, is available after hours (Monday-Friday 4 p.m. to 7 a.m. and Friday 4 p.m. to Monday 7 a.m.) for established oncology patients at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas who are sick or otherwise in need of assistance.

Most cancer patients who experience an unexpected health crisis may end up in a hospital emergency room, where appropriate treatment may be delayed and they are exposed to others.

By coming directly to the Oncology Evaluation and Treatment Center, our cancer patients are able to avoid the inconvenience and risks of the emergency room setting, saving time and possibly removing the need for a hospital admission if problems can be taken care of in this walk-in setting.
