Baylor Scott & White Health announces the first name change of an existing hospital in its North Texas division. Baylor Medical Center at Irving is now Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Irving. The hospital’s external signage changed in late May.
“Today marks a new chapter for the patients of our community,” hospital president Cindy Schamp said in a news release. “We have had the opportunity to serve this community since 1964 first as Irving Community Hospital and as Baylor Medical Center at Irving since 1995. We can now draw on the expanded resources, advanced technologies and expertise of the Baylor Scott & White Health system – the result of the combination of two preeminent health organizations, both with outstanding reputations.”
Baylor Scott & White – Irving is a 296-bed hospital located at MacArthur and State Highway 183. The hospital celebrated 50 years of service to the community in 2014.
The new name also comes with a new look. The hospital recently invested more than $37 million to expand and enhance the campus.
The not-for-profit health system, today the largest in Texas, plans to rename all of its 49 hospitals over time in a fiscally responsible way.
