About

The Austin metropolitan area, including Round Rock, is one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Round Rock is a 101-bed, full-service facility conveniently located to meet the needs of the growing population in this area. 

The phenomenal growth in Williamson and northern Travis counties precipitated the need to expand our facilies and grow our services. The hospital now includes 26 additional intensive care unit beds, four new operating suites, an endoscopy suite, and eight additional emergency room beds. 


Area of Greatest Need

Cancer Care

High-Quality Imaging to Enhance Radiation Therapy - Ultrasound Machine

A new ultrasound machine for the Radiation Oncology program will enhance the ability of radiation oncologists to perform procedures designed to improve the quality of life and reduce side effects for patients undergoing radiation therapy for prostate cancer.

For example, the ultrasound machine is used to inject biodegradable hydrogel into the space between the prostate and the rectum to help decrease the effect of radiation on surrounding healthy tissue. (See image below.)


Nurse Navigators

Nurse navigators support patients throughout their cancer journey, helping to eliminate barriers to care and providing guidance, education, and emotional support, all at no cost to the patient. With your help, we can establish an endowment fund to support these vital services and help make the cancer journey less stressful for our patients and their families.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture therapy has been found to help alleviate the pain and side-effects of cancer treatment, as well as decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression. However, it is not covered by most insurance policies. With your help, we can provide acupuncture services at no cost to our patients.

Technology & Innovation

At Baylor Scott & White, we’re dedicated to help patients Get Better: better care to help them lead better, healthier lives. That’s why we’re investing in technology and innovation. Often, finding the best treatment or method requires looking at challenges in different ways and incorporating new technologies or standards of care.

Over the next 10 years, Baylor Scott & White will invest more than $250 million in technology and innovation in the Greater Austin region.

Technology

Advanced technology can make health care not only safer and more efficient, but also more convenient and engaging for patients. Patients who feel more involved in their own health care often make healthier choices, have fewer emergency room visits, and collaborate with physicians to make better decisions about their care.

Over the next 10 years, Baylor Scott & White will commit more than $200 million to advanced technology in the Greater Austin region on items like:

  • Devices that will share patient data with providers, such as wireless scales, fitness trackers, glucose monitoring patches, and phone cases with built-in blood pressure sensors
  • Virtual reality technology for use with mental health patients to create a calming environment, and with surgical patients to demonstrate at-home care and prevent readmission
  • Telemedicine technology to help bring expertise to patients when and where it's most convenient for them, including E-visits, at-home otoscopes for children with frequent ear infections, and an iRobot for highly specialized physicians to visit in-patients across the region

Innovation

Innovation is at the forefront of cutting-edge medicine. At Baylor Scott & White, we embrace innovation to discover new solutions to reduce preventable and recurrent health problems. Over the next 10 years, we will commit more than $50 million to assess and adopt innovations that will yield the best outcomes for our patients. Our plans include:

  • Innovation lab space where researchers can develop new solutions
  • Innovation Challenge program will invite startup organizations to present solutions to a given issue
  • New medication workflows to assist pharmacists with verification and communication with patients, and increase patient compliance
