First Dedicated Heart and Vascular Hospital in Waxahachie Opens August 21, 2023
Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital’s nationally recognized cardiovascular care now available in Ellis and Navarro counties
WAXAHACHIE, Texas (August 21, 2023) – Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital – Waxahachie, an expansion of the nationally recognized Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital – Dallas, is now open.
Part of the largest network of dedicated cardiovascular care between Dallas and Waxahachie, Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital – Waxahachie offers several cardiovascular interventional services, peripheral vascular treatments and non-invasive services, such as echocardiography, echocardiograms and other non-invasive testing. New catheterization rooms and an outpatient nursing unit are all part of the expansion.
“Building on our legacy of innovative, comprehensive patient care, we are proud to expand the continuum of heart and vascular care to Ellis and Navarro County communities,” said Nancy Vish, president and chief nursing officer, Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular in Dallas, Fort Worth and Waxahachie. “Our goal is to help our neighbors receive high-quality care closer to home.”
“Heart disease is the region’s primary cause of hospitalization, and patients have already benefitted from having local cardiologists. By adding sub-specialty physicians to the medical staff at our Ellis County hospital — such as interventional cardiologists that perform catheterizations and fellowship-trained vascular surgeons that treat peripheral artery and vascular disease — area residents will have expert heart care close to home,” said Will Turner, president, Baylor Scott & White – Waxahachie. “Our care team will now be able to extend advanced cardiovascular care to our patients with the same level of quality patients receive at Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular – Dallas.”
