The project to expand Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Waxahachie will begin in weeks, according to a Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation filing.

Encompassing nearly 40,000 square feet, the site plan includes the construction of a hospital tower and a new parking garage at 2400 N. Interstate 35E. As part of the same project, renovations allowing for the addition of six ICU beds and a new dining space are planned.

In November, The Waxahachie Sun reported the expansion involves three buildings, including the six-story patient tower and two-story diagnostic and treatment facility. The parking garage is a four-deck design for more than 500 spaces.

The largest nonprofit healthcare system in Texas, Baylor Scott & White Health was founded more than a century ago as Texas Baptist Memorial Sanitarium. The Dallas Express reported this month that Baylor University Medical Center, the flagship hospital of Baylor Scott & White Health-North Texas, has started construction on the pavilion and parking garage at a medical complex in Frisco near PGA of America.

That 409,000-square-foot development that includes a medical office facility and five-level parking appears to coincide with another Baylor Scott & White project to include a $265 million hospital building and central utility plant.

Based in Dallas, the health system includes 51 hospitals and over 800 patient-care sites, and the company operates a sports medicine clinic at The Star in Frisco, where the Dallas Cowboys are headquartered.

In Waxahachie, the 300,000-square-foot hospital is on more than 50 acres at the intersection of I-35 and U.S. 287. The expansion and renovation projects have a combined estimated cost of construction of more than $127 million.
