Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-McKinney is updating its fourth floor to include 48 new patient beds, five bed dialysis units and bathroom flooring designed to help reduce falls.

It will also have new designs, including new color schemes, new low-maintenance flooring and a general family waiting area to reduce noise and improve patient experience.


Construction is expected to be completed by late 2021. Baylor Scott & White’s McKinney campus is located on the northwest corner of Lake Forest and University drives at 5252 W. University Drive, McKinney.
