Baylor Scott & White Health has renamed the final hospital in its five-facility joint venture with the Tenet Healthcare Corp.
Centennial Medical Center in Frisco is now Baylor Scott & White Medical Center — Centennial after a two-hour celebration Thursday evening. The other four hospitals are now branded under the Baylor S&W flag, with the name of the city or the hospital itself following. The others include hospitals in Rowlett, Garland, Sunnyvale, and East Dallas near White Rock Lake.
Centennial is a 118-bed, full-service hospital that offers joint replacement, open heart surgeries, radiology, maternity, and pediatrics. Board member Gary Brock joined Centennial CEO Joe Thompson and Brett Lee, the Dallas market CEO for the joint-venture hospitals in the name change event.
The joint venture closed in January and the hospitals have gradually changed over to Baylor Scott & White branding. They are all now part of the Baylor Scott & White Quality Alliance, the system’s accountable care organization, which reimburses doctors for outcomes instead of volume.
