Baylor Scott & White–Lake Pointe begins construction on new patient tower

(ROWLETT, TX — June 16, 2017) Construction has started on the first phase of the patient tower for Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Lake Pointe.

The 75,000 square foot tower will be comprised of three floors and complement the existing acute care facility; its expected completion will be between late 2018 through early 2019.

“We look forward to opening the new patient tower on the north side of Baylor Scott & White – Lake Pointe and expanding our offering to the community,” said Brett Lee, CEO, Baylor Scott & White – Lake Pointe. “While we continue to grow, we appreciate patients’ understanding of the on-site construction.”

The hospital will remain fully operational during the construction phase of the new patient tower.

Features of the tower include executive administration space, flexible “hoteling” offices for transient employees and vendors, patient registration areas, new dining options to include an expanded and renovated kitchen and a new lobby space.

Post-partum, NICU, and well-baby nursery departments will be moved to the new patient tower and be housed on the same floor. Two, 16-bed medical/surgical patient units with 32 total beds will also be located in the new patient tower.

All floors of the existing building will be connected to the new patient tower and will further advance Baylor Scott & White –Lake Pointe’s ability to serve the residents in the surrounding communities with personalized, quality care.

During construction of the tower, visitor and patient parking is available on the south side of the hospital, with entry at either the main south entry or ambulatory ER entrance.
