New signs, a pedestrian plaza, more parking and a larger emergency room mark some of the changes at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Irving. The hospital unveiled these updates at a reception that included remarks by Cindy Schamp, hospital president; Don Arnwine, executive president of the Irving Hospital Authority; and Helma Mazon, hospital board chair.

“This opens a new chapter in the history of our community hospital,” Mazon said. She added the $37 million in campus renovations will make the hospital more patient and family centered.

Arnwine talked briefly about the project and said he was “gratified to be a part of this.”

Schamp expressed how proud she was to serve as the hospital’s president.

After their remarks, guests could receive tours of the hospital and the emergency room, which now has 55 beds, a pharmacy, a lab, nearby imaging equipment and spacious lounges. They also could enjoy an array of food trucks that offered ice cream and other sweets.
