BAYLOR SCOTT & WHITE – THE HEART HOSPITAL PLANO
E4H designed a new 164,000SF addition for Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital Plano, which offers world-class cardiovascular care to the North Texas community.
The new six-floor North Tower Expansion allows for improved operational efficiency and increased patient load. The first floor features a renovated and expanded lobby, new coffee shop, and the Heart Rock Café—a restaurant caliber dining area. The new education suite is comprised of a 190-seat auditorium with state-of-the-art conferencing capabilities. A new bio-skills classroom allows physicians and residents to practice innovative surgery techniques. The cardiopulmonary rehabilitation unit has been relocated from the original building and features an indoor track and specialized consultation and care areas for physical therapy patients.
The second floor includes four (three completed, plus one future) new operating rooms with an expanded central core, new blood bank, new central sterile processing department, and an expanded post-anesthesia recovery unit. The new physicians’ lounge—complete with conference rooms and a new residents’ suite—helps retain the top physicians in the field by making it a premier place to work. The third floor houses 28 private patient rooms in a new inpatient unit. The fourth floor is currently shelled for a future 28-room expansion to match the floor below. On the fifth floor, the Baylor Research Institute has moved into the space conducting long term research into procedures and medications.
