A group of 86 practicing cardiovascular physicians and surgeons created The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano in partnership with Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano. Today, it is ranked eighth in the country in heart valve surgeries based on patient volume* and is the first and only freestanding, full-service hospital in the region dedicated solely to heart and vascular health care.
Committed to providing safe, quality, compassionate care and five-star service, the 116-bed hospital has received numerous awards and recognition since its January 2007 opening. It is:
- A five-time Press Ganey® Summit Award®-winner for inpatient and emergency department satisfaction

- An Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI by the Society of Chest Pain Centers
In addition, The Heart Hospital has received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Advanced Heart Failure; the Aetna Institute of Quality for Cardiovascular Care; and The Joint Commission’s Certification for Ventricular Assist Device.
Last year the hospital also became one of a select group of 382 health care organizations out of 6,000 achieving Magnet® recognition.
