McKinney hospitals plan to expand their facilities over the coming years and have already made headway in fulfilling long-term goals.

Below is a roundup of the projects.

Methodist McKinney Hospital

Methodist McKinney Hospital will continue to offer modern, robotic knee surgery options for its patients.

The hospital has invested in the Zimmer Biomet ROSA Knee System, which brings together robotic technology with knee implants to help surgeons personalize surgical procedures for their patients, according to a news release.


“For everyone involved—surgeons, medical staff and, most importantly, patients—ROSA Knee has the potential to offer a number of key benefits,” Methodist McKinney Hospital President Joe Minissale said in the release.

Medical City McKinney

Medical City McKinney is taking steps to complete building expansions over the next five years.

On Dec. 13, the hospital completed a $64 million patient tower and ER expansion project, according to spokesperson Sally Huggins. The new facilities are part of the hospital’s capital investment initiative, which will amount to $1.4 billion spent or committed over five years.

“We are proud to continue to invest in our community with these additional lifesaving emergency services and leading-edge inpatient treatment areas,” CEO Ernest C. Lynch said in a news release. Projects will include building expansions, facility enhancements and updated technology.

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-McKinney has been open for more than nine years, and an expansion project on the fourth floor will help streamline services into its 10th year.

The hospital recently completed a 48-patient bed expansion project on the fourth floor, spokesperson Matthew Olivolo said. The floor has 24 beds dedicated to oncology and 24 for orthopedics. Olivolo said the project brings the hospital’s total bed count to 191.

“The new floor is equipped with innovative technology to enhance real-time communication along with expanded orthopedics and oncology units,” Olivolo said. Olivolo said the project will help boost efficiency and patient flow.
