Texas Health Frisco officially opened its doors to patients Dec. 14 with a grand opening celebration that included a snow-covered slide, cooking demonstrations, and photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Frisco’s newest hospital campus, which is located on the Dallas North Tollway just north of Eldorado Parkway, includes 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.

“This is a campus that is intended to be a gathering place for this community,” Texas Health Frisco President Brett Lee said. “We’ll have wonderful programs to care for our community when they’re sick, but we’re also partnering with them for a lifetime of health and well-being. So we have walking trails on campus, we’ll have health education classes, cooking classes on campus. We’re excited to grow and expand with this community as it continues to evolve.”

Texas Health Frisco, which is the city’s fourth hospital, opened as a 63-bed, acute care hospital with an emergency room, women’s services, a neonatal intensive care unit and diagnostic imaging, among other services.

“I’m excited about being able to partner with this community for generations to come,” Lee said. “It’s not often that you get an opportunity to build a hospital out of the ground, and develop the culture, develop the team, develop the services. And we’ve done that I think the right way, in connection with the community, asking them about what’s important to them, crafting our clinical services to what exists in this community and then working with them collaboratively going forward to make sure we evolve to what this community needs going forward.”


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