After making a mark on other areas in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, UT Southwestern Medical Center at Frisco will be available to Frisco patients next month.

“It’s our commitment for you to have access to the specialty care that we provide,” said Daniel Podolsky, UT Southwestern Medical Center president, at a Nov. 21 ribbon-cutting event.

The 120,000-square-foot medical center will offer services in 35 specialties from 70 physicians, he said.

“This was a natural fit for Frisco,” Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney said at the event. “Y’all are innovators here, and we’re trying to play on an international stage.”

The medical center’s development is a collaboration with Texas Health Frisco, which will open a 325,000-square-foot hospital with 73 hospital beds.


“We’re excited that alongside the hospital, [there will be] new options for research-based treatments that don’t exist in the community today,” said Brett Lee, Texas Health Hospital Frisco president, during the event.
