Baylor Scott & White Health held a groundbreaking Aug. 29 for its first hospital in the city of Austin. Located at 5243 Hwy. 290, Austin, construction began in July at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Austin Oak Hill. During the groundbreaking, the health care system’s Austin/Round Rock President Jay Fox said the project should be completed in a little over a year.

Baylor Scott & White Health CEO Jim Hinton said the full-service hospital will complement other Baylor Scott & White clinics and facilities already in the Austin area. Although the Austin Oak Hill hospital will be the health care system’s first within Austin city limits, there are four others in Travis County. 844-279-3627.
