Doctors at Frisco’s newest hospital campus will begin seeing patients in December.

Texas Health Frisco and UT Southwestern Medical Center at Frisco will open next month on a 20-acre campus just east of the Dallas North Tollway.

The development will include a 325,000-square-foot hospital and a 120,000-square-foot medical center as the result of a collaboration between Texas Health Resources and UT Southwestern Medical Center.

“The intent with this partnership is to ... import the expertise that exists at UT Southwestern into a warm and welcoming community hospital environment that’s convenient to the growing Frisco community and creating a care delivery network that is unlike anything else that exists in the metroplex,” Texas Health Frisco President Brett Lee said.

A grand opening event for the development is planned for Dec. 14.

Texas Health Frisco

Texas Health Frisco will be the city’s fourth hospital. It will open as a 73-bed, acute care hospital with an emergency room, women’s services, a neonatal intensive care unit and diagnostic imaging, among other services.

The hospital has room to expand and could eventually house up to 300 beds in the main facility, Lee said. Over the next five to six years, the hospital could add patient towers based on demand, he said.

“The fact that we have a 20-acre campus to grow into over the course of the next several years, I think, really positions us to become the medical district for Frisco and the surrounding communities,” Lee said.

Aside from medical services, Lee said, the hospital is intended to be a “gathering place” for the community. The campus will include walking trails, a community garden, an Ascension coffee shop and a bistro.

UT Southwestern Medical Center

UT Southwestern’s main location is in Dallas. About 13% of patients who visit the main campus live within a few miles of the future Frisco medical center, said Dr. John Warner, executive vice president for health system affairs at UT Southwestern.

“We want to meet our patients where they are,” Warner said. “When we were thinking about places of where we might be developing new facilities to be closer to patients and their families, Frisco was an obvious choice.”

The four-story medical office building will house adult and pediatric specialties, such as dermatology, neurology, orthopedic surgery and physical rehabilitation. It will also include a retail pharmacy and lab services.

Warner said several UT Southwestern physicians and staff also live near the future medical campus, and those employees are excited to work closer to their homes.
