First Baylor Scott & White Health Hospital Named

Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center Becomes Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center

Baylor Scott & White Health, the organization formed from the October 2013 merger between Baylor Health Care System and Scott & White Healthcare, announces the first hospital to carry the new organization's name. Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center today became Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center.

"Today marks a new chapter for the patients of our community," said Glenn Robinson, president of Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center. "We have had the opportunity to serve this community since 1920, and we can now draw on the 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."

Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center is the first hospital in the new system to have the Baylor Scott & White name. The hospital's new signage was unveiled to a crowd of several hundred community leaders, Baylor Scott & White employees and guests.

"We at Baylor Scott & White Health are proud to have deep roots here in Texas, with facilities like Hillcrest that are cornerstones of the communities they have served for decades," said Joel Allison, CEO of Baylor Scott & White Health. "But we are equally excited about the future. Every Baylor Scott & White sign that goes up, including this one today, takes us one step closer to our goal of creating a new, exemplary health system to serve as a model for others around the country to follow."

The not-for-profit health system, today the largest in Texas, plans to rename all of its 46 hospitals over time in a fiscally responsible way.
