Emergency Care Center

The current Baylor Scott & White All Saints Emergency Care Center currently handles 45,000 patient visits per year, an average of 135 patients per day.  Last updated in 1994, the facility was designed to care for 20,000 patients annually.  As a result, the Emergency Care Center is experiencing severe overcrowding during peak volume periods.  

Despite these space restrictions, the Emergency Care Center staff deliver superior care.  The acuity of the patients seen is very high, as 25% of patients seen in the Emergency Care Center are admitted to the Medical Center for continued care.  These patients account for 50% of all our hospital admissions, which again attests to the high acuity of illness and injuries being seen in the Emergency Care Center.  The Baylor Scott & White All Saints Emergency Care Center is the symbolic ‘front door’ to the Medical Center. 

To address the existing limitations our current Emergency Care Center, this Spring we will begin building a new Emergency Care Center to effectively and efficiently manage the current volume and anticipated growth of patient needs.  The additional space will allow an increase in the number of beds and relocate necessary equipment.  Additionally, improved equipment and resources for monitoring and caring for our patients will be incorporated.

This project will substantially improve patient care while allowing Baylor Scott & White All Saints the ability to serve more patients in a cost-effective manner through an improved workflow.  The new Emergency Care Center will allow our doctors and nurses to assess patients and determine the best plan for each individual more efficiently.  The ability to care for more patients comfortably within the Emergency Care Center while they are being processed for admission to the Medical Center will have a positive impact on both patient care and patient satisfaction.

Fort Worth Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Oncology Coalition Unit

Cancer is the number one disease-related cause of death in adolescents and young adults (AYAs).   Teens and young adults with cancer often have delayed diagnoses.  They don’t go to the doctor soon enough, or their doctors miss their symptoms because they do not fit the typical profile of a potential cancer patient.  Once diagnosed, they face unique treatment and psychosocial issues.  There are 2.5 times as many 16-29-year-olds diagnosed with cancer each year as children, but there are no dedicated facilities or resources, research agendas, or support services focused on this population.  Their survival rates have remained stagnant for the last 30 years.

The Fort Worth Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Coalition (FWAYAOC) brings together teen and young adult cancer patients, survivors, health professionals, nine medical treatment organizations, two cancer services organizations, and the community in a unified effort to support young people before, during, and after cancer.  The Coalition’s first major project is to create a hospital unit dedicated to serving AYA cancer patients. 

The FWAYAOC Unit is the first of its kind in the United States.  Having opened in May 2016, this unit provides our community a dedicated, age-relevant treatment environment for patients diagnosed with cancer between the ages of 18 years to 29 years old.  It features uniquely designed rooms to meet the needs of patients and their loved ones.  All staff in the unit are specially trained in adolescent and young adult oncology.  In addition to clinical staff, a navigator and social worker are on hand to assist with psychosocial and financial needs.  Together, we are dramatically improving care for adolescents and young adults battling cancer in our community.

Transplant Program

The Baylor Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute at Baylor Scott & White All Saints is an internationally renowned destination for transplant care.  Our transplant program started in 2002 and performs kidney, liver and pancreas transplants.  The achievement of reaching 1,000 kidney transplants in 2014 was truly a significant accomplishment for Baylor Scott & White All Saints.  Our world-renowned physicians on our medical staff and highly trained staff have made transplant services a shining star.  Our transplant services reach well beyond Fort Worth since our kidney transplant team now travels weekly to a kidney transplant clinic in Lubbock, and soon the team will add Amarillo. Setting up these clinics is part of Baylor All Saints’ patient-centered care.  We want to provide services – pre-transplant evaluation or transplant follow-up for post-transplant patients – in a convenient setting for our patients.
