Baylor College of Medicine McNair Campus

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 valued. 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 seven adult practices, and the new Baylor College of Medicine Medical Center, occupied by four 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 College of Medicine owned and operated.

Specialty care areas in Jamail include Alkek Eye Center, Center for Aesthetic Surgery, Baylor Psychiatry Clinic, Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Disorders Center, Baylor Dermatology, Robert R. and May M. Onstead Foundation Ambulatory Surgery Center, and Adult Genetics Clinic.

Specialty care areas at the BCM Medical Center include UrologyGastroenterology and Hepatology, Orthopedic Surgery, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

The new BCM Medical Center, which opened its doors Nov. 25, 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 BCM 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 and CEO 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."
