Expansion projects and service growth will be in the works for Frisco hospitals next year. Here is a roundup of plans at four Frisco facilities.

1. Baylor Scott & White-Centennial

Expansions to the catheterization and interventional radiology suite will allow Baylor Scott & White-Centennial to enhance invasive cardiology services in 2021, according to Matthew Olivolo, media relations specialist for Baylor Scott & White Health.

Existing property will be repurposed to accommodate the expansion, Olivolo said. Upgrades to technology for noninvasive cardiology services are also in progress, he said.

2. Baylor Scott & White-Frisco

Renovations are currently underway for the Women’s Center at Baylor Scott & White-Frisco, Olivolo said. Improvements will affect the hospital’s labor and delivery, NICU and postpartum services.

3. Medical City Frisco

Work on a hospital, medical office building and parking garage across 10 acres on the southeast corner of Dallas Parkway and Main Street will begin in summer 2021 at Medical City Frisco, according to past Community Impact Newspaper coverage.

4. Texas Health Frisco

Key developments planned for 2021 at Texas Health Frisco include a project to build out an additional floor of the hospital, according to THF President Brett Lee.

This will expand the hospital’s inpatient capacity by 30 beds, Lee said.

Texas Health also plans to expand services to include cardiac catheterization and vascular surgery, as well as NICU services, Lee said.
