Baylor University Medical Center plans to convert space at its Dallas campus for additional labor and delivery rooms.

A Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation filing shows the project involves renovating 3,200 square feet of existing office/ultrasound/training sPreview (opens in a new tab)pace into three additional labor and delivery rooms.

The project, scheduled to begin in May, bears an estimated construction cost of $3 million. It has an anticipated delivery date of September 2025, and HDR Architecture of Dallas is listed as the design firm on the state filing.

Baylor University Medical Center (BUMC) is part of Baylor Scott & White Health, the largest nonprofit healthcare system in Texas. Founded more than a century ago as Texas Baptist Memorial Sanitarium, Baylor University Medical Center is the flagship hospital of Baylor Scott & White Health-North Texas.

Meanwhile, late last year, construction began on the pavilion and parking garage at a Baylor Scott & White Health medical complex in Frisco near PGA of America, The Dallas Express reported. The 409,000-square-foot development includes a medical office building and a five-level parking garage.

That project appears to coincide with another Baylor Scott & White development set to include a $265 million hospital building and a central utility plant. The delivery for that project is scheduled for May 2025.

Baylor Scott & White Health was formed in 2013. Based in Dallas, it includes 51 hospitals and more than 800 patient-care sites and operates a sports medicine clinic at Frisco’s The Star — the headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys.

In November, The Dallas Express reported on how the cardiology team at BUMC in Dallas had outfitted 51-year-old Diana Bowen, a Louisiana school teacher, with an artificial heart after she arrived at the facility with heart failure. The move was a temporary measure while Bowen waits for an organ transplant.
