Project relocates services to main hospital campus

Medical City McKinney is expanding its rehabilitation and behavioral health services with the construction of a leading edge, dedicated pavilion on its main campus. The $52 million expansion project will allow the hospital to relocate services from the Wysong campus to the main campus, while also adding additional patient beds.

“By expanding and moving these services to our main campus, we will be able to provide our patients with a full continuum of care in one location,” said Ernest C. Lynch, III, FACHE, CEO of Medical City McKinney. “Our patients will be better served when our entire range of healthcare services are centrally located on one campus.”

Once the rehab and behavioral health pavilion is complete it will include:

  • 20 inpatient rehabilitation patient rooms
  • 80 adult and geriatric behavioral health patient rooms
  • Outpatient behavioral health program
  • Outdoor healing garden
  • Design elements to include focus on natural lighting and open floor plan in common areas

“We currently offer adult and geriatric inpatient treatment programs for a wide range of conditions such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorders,” said Amee Nash, vice president of behavioral health services. “We are excited that the expansion will allow us to enhance our offerings and add new outpatient programs to meet a growing community demand, and to keep our promise of patients first.”

“The new inpatient rehabilitation facility will allow our dedicated team of doctors, therapists, and nurses to provide comprehensive rehab services in a beautiful, inviting environment with top-of-the-line therapy equipment,” said Allison Wheeler, director of rehabilitation services.

The Rehabilitation and Behavioral Health Pavilion coincides with a major capital investment initiative of more than $1.5 billion spent or committed over three years by Medical City Healthcare. Investments include expansion and improvements to existing hospitals, upgraded technology and new services such as burn and trauma care.

“Medical City McKinney is expanding to meet our growing community’s needs,” said Lynch. “This project is just the beginning of a multi-phase expansion for the hospital.”

Construction will begin mid-2018 and is expected to be complete by December 2019.
