COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Baylor Scott & White Health has changed the name of the hospital in College Station, and celebrates the change with the community. Scott & White Hospital – College Station is now Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – College Station. A day full of activities for staff and community dignitaries on the hospital grounds provided a celebration for the name change announcement. The signs with the new name were installed on the outside of the hospital just over a week ago.
"This hospital opened almost three years ago, and today begins a new chapter for the patients of our Bryan and College Station area," said Jason Jennings, president of the Baylor Scott & White – College Station region. "We have had the opportunity to serve this community since 1985, when we opened our College Station clinic with 22 physicians. Today we draw on expanded resources, advanced technologies and expertise of the Baylor Scott & White Health system – the result of the combination of two preeminent health organizations, both with outstanding reputations. Today we do that proudly under our new name."
Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – College Station is a five-story, 143-bed, fully accredited acute care hospital with an adjacent medical office building for specialty and subspecialty clinic care, all located at the intersection of Texas Hwy 6 and Rock Prairie road. The hospital opened in August 2013, is now an accredited chest pain center, and offers a wide spectrum of medical and health care services including an emergency department, general and specialty surgery, comprehensive cardiac services (including cardiac catheterization labs), neonatal intensive care unit, inter-operative robotics, and many other specialty services.
The not-for-profit health system, which today the largest in Texas, has been systematically renaming all of its 49 hospital across central and north Texas over the two years since the systems' merged, taking the time to accomplish the task in a fiscally responsible manner.
