UT Southwestern Medical Center first opened its doors in Dallas in 1943 as Southwestern Medical School.
Over the last 77 years, it has grown into a multifaceted academic medical institution that is nationally recognized for its excellence in cutting-edge research, educating generations of physicians and scientists, and providing North Texas with innovative and compassionate health care.
And now, UT Southwestern Medical Center Frisco has come to our beloved city in a big way, opening a new 120,000-square-foot outpatient specialty care facility at the corner of the Dallas North Tollway and Eldorado Parkway.
UT Southwestern Frisco offers on-site medical care for adults and children in a dozen specialty areas, including neurology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, and sports medicine, along with imaging and lab services and free covered parking. A retail pharmacy will open soon.
UT Southwestern Frisco is the fifth regional medical center UTSW has opened since the fall of 2012. The Frisco location is unique, however, because it is part of a beautiful new 20-acre medical campus and a joint venture with Texas Health Hospital Frisco.
The Frisco campus creates a seamless patient experience, bringing the expert specialty care of UT Southwestern close to home, together with surgical services, a 24/7 emergency room, women’s services, and a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at the new eight-story, 325,000-square-foot Texas Health Hospital.
UT Southwestern may be new to Frisco, but it’s certainly well-established within the Metroplex. For many years, it’s been ranked as one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers. For the past three years, U.S. News & World Report has ranked UT Southwestern the No. 1 hospital in Dallas-Fort Worth.
With more than 3,000 physicians and scientists, UT Southwestern brings a combined 30,000+ years of experience to the practice of medicine and the science of healing. And many of the doctors, nurses, and patients at UT Southwestern Frisco have been calling the city home for years.
UT Southwestern Medical Center has been caring, teaching, and discovering here in North Texas for decades, and Frisco residents are thrilled to have its brand of advanced research, clinical trials, and compassionate patient care joining our skyline and city.
