Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Centennial is expanding its cardiovascular care.

Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital-Plano—ranked among the top 1% of heart hospitals in the country—is bringing its services to the Frisco hospital and providing relationships and oversight of the program, according to a news release.

“We are excited to make our quality cardiovascular services available to more communities in North Texas,” said Mark Valentine, president, Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital in Plano, Denton and McKinney, in a statement. “By offering these new services and follow-up care close to our patients’ homes, we expand our commitment to empowering patients with the advanced cardiovascular research, as well as wellness and prevention programs.”

Expanded services at the hospital include several cardiovascular interventional services, electrophysiology treatments as well as noninvasive services, such as high-speed cardiac CT, ultrasound and testing. This will include new catheterization rooms, labs and an outpatient nursing unit, per the release.

“As the largest provider of cardiovascular care in North Texas, this expansion of cardiovascular services allows us to bring our quality services to more North Texas communities,” said Dr. Michael Mack, medical director of cardiothoracic surgery for Baylor Scott & White Health and the chairman of Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital-Plano Research Center, in a statement.


The partnership allows patients to find advanced cardiovascular care at their local hospital, said Ryan Gebhart, president of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Centennial.

“Bringing quality cardiovascular services to the city of Frisco is exciting as we grow with the community,” he said in a statement.
