Baylor College of Medicine is building for the future of healthcare. Its new model of healthcare delivery on the McNair Campus will provide a system that focuses on exceptional care at the best value. A system that makes sense to patients from the time they call for an appointment until their care is completed.
Two Healthcare Locations
Located on a 35-acre tract adjacent to the DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center and in close proximity to the Texas Medical Center, the McNair Campus is home to two outstanding healthcare facilities: the Lee and Joe Jamail Specialty Care Center, which is fully occupied with 9 adult practices, and the Baylor College of Medicine Medical Center, occupied by 16 adult practices.
In addition, Baylor and CHI St. Luke’s recently announced that a new hospital, the Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center, part of the CHI St. Luke’s Health system, will be built out on the McNair Campus, in the same location as the outpatient clinics. The hospital will be co-owned and operated by Baylor and CHI St. Luke’s. The outpatient clinics are Baylor owned and operated.
Specialty care areas and clinics at the Jamail Care Center include Alkek Eye Center, Audiology Services, Baylor College of Medicine Aesthetics, Baylor Facial Plastic Surgery Center, Baylor Psychiatry Clinic, Center for Plastic Surgery, Center for Hearing and Balance, dermatology and Robert R. and Kay M. Onstead Foundation Ambulatory Surgery Center.
Specialty care areas and clinics at the Baylor College of Medicine Medical Center include Cystic Fibrosis Center, endocrinology, Gastroenterology Care Center, Genetics Clinic, internal medicine, infectious diseases, Institute for Voice and Swallowing, nephrology, Neurology Clinic, Neurosurgery Clinic, orthopedic surgery, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinic, pulmonary, Rheumatology Clinic, sleep medicine, Transition Medicine Clinic, Urology Clinic and the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The Baylor College of Medicine Medical Center, which opened its doors Nov. 25, 2013, provides an estimated 185,000 square feet of space on three floors - space needed for continued growth of the College’s clinical activities. The NCI-designated cancer center, general surgery, vascular surgery, otolaryngology, and cardiology will follow in the subsequent phase.
Forefront of Healthcare
The College's research and education missions eventually will be added to the McNair Campus, keeping Baylor at the forefront of healthcare innovations.
"Our McNair Campus is beautiful. Our buildings are superb. But what will set us apart as we move forward is the way we treat our patients. That is our highest priority – the thing that matters most in whether we are successful in our clinical mission," said Dr. Paul Klotman, president, CEO, and executive dean of Baylor College of Medicine. "Our goal is to provide exceptional care at the best value for our patients in a system that makes sense to patients – from the time they call for an appointment until their care is completed. This is what Baylor College of Medicine and the Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center will be known for – putting patients first."
