PHILLIP WATERS, E4H ENVIRONMENTS FOR HEALTH ARCHITECTURE (FIRST LOOK)
BAYLOR SCOTT & White Medical Center in McKinney, Texas, is expanding with a new one-story "hospital in a hospital" that will deliver specialized cardiology services. The Heart Hospital Baylor McKinney,
which broke ground in January 2018 and is expected to be completed
in March 2019, will include four inpatient beds, 10 post-anesthesia care
units, four procedure rooms for electrophysiology and catheterization, shell space, and eight holding rooms. The heart hospital, designed
by E4H Environments for Health Architecture (Arlington, Texas) and
constructed by Medco (Dallas), will operate with a separate license
from the host hospital, but the two hospitals will share contracted services, facilities, and systems.
