The Wysong Hospital campus, or the building that formerly housed Medical City Behavioral Health services, has been rezoned from planned development to commercial.

McKinney City Council approved this change at its Sept. 15 meeting. The Wysong Hospital campus and 11.47 acres surrounding it are 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. Director of Planning Jennifer Arnold said she believed it is possible the hospital building would be demolished to make room for some of the new possible uses, such as retail, restaurant, a movie theater, hotel or motel.

The hospital services, which were located at 130 S. Central Expressway, have been relocated to 4500 Medical Center Drive under Medical City McKinney’s new behavioral health and rehabilitation services pavilion, which recently finished construction.
