Texas Regional Medical Center at Sunnyvale is changing its name to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Sunnyvale
. The name change is part of the joint venture between Baylor Scott & White Health and Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE:THC) to own five hospitals in North Texas, which was completed in January.
“Operating under the Baylor Scott & White name reflects our renewed commitment to providing the community with the quality, compassionate health care it deserves,” says Collin LeMaistre, Chief Executive Officer of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Sunnyvale. “For more than a century, Baylor Scott & White Health has been caring for North Texans, and we’re proud to now be a part of that legacy.”
In addition to the new name and brand, the joint venture calls for shared governance of the hospital by a jointly appointed board of managers and other initiatives to better serve patients and the community.
“Our new name and signage is a symbol that we are dedicated to strengthening patient care and continuing our commitment to Sunnyvale and the surrounding communities for generations to come,” says LeMaistre.
