The McKinney Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously voted Aug. 25 to rezone 11.47 acres to allow for the redevelopment of the Wysong Hospital campus, or the building housing Medical City Behavioral Health, and the surrounding area.

The property is currently zoned for planned development and would be zoned for commercial.

The existing hospital building and area around it is under contract to be sold to an owner who plans to redevelop the property with commercial uses, according to meeting documents.

There are no firm development plans for this area, said Matt Moore with Claymoore Engineering on behalf of the applicant. The intention was to clean the zoning up in case anything does move forward.

The hospital services, currently located at 130 S. Central Expressway, will be relocated to 4500 Medical Center Drive under Medical City McKinney’s new behavioral health and rehabilitation services pavilion, which is currently under construction.


The commissioners unanimously approved the rezoning. The project will be presented to McKinney City Council at its Sept. 15 meeting.
