After several significant changes to the services offered at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Garland over the past several years, and after looking for a new owner for the facility without success, we have made the difficult decision to close the hospital. The last day of operations is projected for Feb. 28, 2018.
This decision was especially difficult because of the rich history we have as a provider of compassionate care to this community. First opening as Memorial Hospital of Garland, and eventually joining our System in 1991, Baylor Scott & White – Garland has delivered high-quality medical services for more than five decades—and will continue to do so until its closing.
We plan to keep the emergency room open until no later than 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 28, 2018. To help facilitate an effective transition, the last day for patient admissions is projected for Feb. 16, 2018. Any inpatients remaining in the Baylor Scott & White – Garland facility on the date of closure will be transferred to an acute care hospital within the Baylor Scott & White System or to the facility of the patient’s choice.
Patients who have procedures scheduled after Feb. 16, 2018, should contact their doctor’s office to reschedule and transfer their care to another location. Patient navigators are standing by at 1.844.279.7589 to assist patients in need of care during the time period approaching the closure. If a patient needs to obtain a copy of his or her medical record before Feb. 28, 2018, please contact the Health Information management department at the hospital by calling 972.487.5080.

Although the hospital will be closing, Baylor Scott & White and our affiliates will continue to serve the Garland community through several access points, including family medicine, cardiology, imaging, orthopedics, outpatient rehabilitation and more.
