Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital

Supporting our local communities

Showing our support and gratitude to the community is an important part of our hospital's mission and identity as an institution built on Christian ideals. As one of the largest employers in the area, we feel our responsibility as leaders is to share our passion for helping others, not only within our doors but also in the community. Our staff members have the drive and desire to go above and beyond, by doing extra for others, and taking part in unique activities that make a difference. We take great pride in helping the people in the community as well as caring for the patients at our hospital.

As a part of Baylor Scott & White Health, the commitment to assess community health needs is a part of our legacy of commitment to improving the health of the communities served. As outlined by federal requirements for Baylor Scott & White Health and those noted in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care act, Baylor Scott & White undertook an examination of public health indicators and conducted a benchmark analysis comparing communities served by Baylor Scott & White Health to the overall state of Texas in order to determine the needs of the communities served by the organization.


Screenings and educational classes

Using preventive medicine, we work with our local community to fight heart and vascular diseases. From screenings to free educational classes, we offer support before, during, and after procedures.

We offer calcium score screening, which is a non-invasive CT scan to help determine the extent of your heart and vessel disease;

Our support groups and educational programs can help you cope with your situation as well as learn about your condition so you can adopt healthy lifestyle habits.

Charitable organizations and events


Our hospital and team members are active with many charitable organizations and events throughout the community. 

We encourage everyone to get involved with these worthwhile causes. Please ask one of our staff members how to take the first step.

Some of these include:

  • Volunteering at the Austin Street homeless shelter, which includes clothing drives, food drives, and providing lunch or dinner for the shelter. Austin Street exists to provide emergency shelter and related services to the homeless in a compassionate environment.
  • Raising money and awareness for the American Heart Association, including participating in the annual Heart Walk, which is a fun-filled, non-competitive three-mile walk through downtown Dallas.
  • Participating in the Adopt-A-Family program, which involves adopting a needy family every Holiday Season. We take donations from employees and physicians and personally deliver gifts and food to their home.
  • Sponsoring and participating in screenings at the annual ?Feria de Salud,? a health fair held every September. Hospital staff participate in the health screenings and community education topics. The event strives to bring awareness to the Latino community about diabetes prevention and management.
  • Supporting the United Way, which addresses many welfare issues facing Americans.
  • Coordinating community talks on topics such as atrial fibrillation, women and heart disease, and know your heart health numbers.
  • Sponsoring health fairs such as "For Women For Life" women's health fair.
