The largest not-for-profit health care system in Texas, and one of the largest in the United States, Baylor Scott & White Health was born from the 2013 combination of Baylor Health Care System and Scott & White Healthcare.

Known for exceptional patient care for more than a century, the two organizations serve adjacent regions of Texas and operate on a foundation of complementary values and similar missions. Baylor Scott & White Health includes 48 hospitals, more than 900 patient care sites, more than 6,000 active physicians, 40,000+ employees and the Scott & White Health Plan.

Over the years, Baylor and Scott & White have worked together as members of the High Value Healthcare Collaborative, the Texas Care Alliance and Healthcare Coalition of Texas and are two of the best known, top-quality health care systems in the country, not to mention in Texas.

After years of thoughtful deliberation, the leaders of Baylor Health Care System and Scott & White Healthcare decided to combine the strengths of the two health systems and create a new model system able to meet the demands of health care reform, the changing needs of patients and extraordinary recent advances in clinical care.

With a commitment to and a track record of innovation, collaboration, integrity and compassion for the patient, Baylor Scott & White Health stands to be one of the nation's exemplary health care organizations.​
