The Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano was constructed on a 21-acresite and consisted of a hospital of 354,400square feet; a medical office building of 195,000 square feet; a six-level, 1,080vehicle parking garage; a central plant; and surface parking. Baylor Plano's goal was to first understand the hospital experience from the patient's point of view and second, based on this understanding, to create an environment that eases worries and focuses on health. Every detail of Baylor Plano is part of a healing environment designed to nurture and patient comfort abounds, from the private, well-appointed patient rooms, to the nearby visitors' lounge where family and friends can prepare a meal, socialize or just relax. 

The hospital's first phase has inpatient units with 96 beds and a 40 bed day-patient unit. Patient diagnostic and treatment areas include urgent care, imaging, women's health, endoscopy, surgical procedures, catheterization lab, and physical medicine. Hospital support areas are business office, medical records, administration, dietary, laboratory, pharmacy, central processing, materials management, maintenance, security, housekeeping and biomedical engineering. Functionally, hospital diagnostic and treatment activities a relocated in the lower three stories, including the below grade garden level. Above this base structure is a five-story patient/nursing tower that together provides an impressive and highly visible seven-story facility. 

At the lower level, a terraced garden and outdoor courtyard are located outside the cafe, where light filters into the area through the chapel's stained-glass windows, which is the perfect place to enjoy a meal and peaceful surroundings. 

On the main floor, access is provided to outpatient care and centralized registration. Additionally, a Concierge Desk for arriving patients, visitors, or conference center attendees along with a cyber cafe and coffee shop bistro are available. 

Thanks to a floor plan that puts each nursing station close to the patient rooms as well as a low patient-to-nurse ratio, nurses are never more than 25 steps away. The carpeted patient care floors utilize personal touches and soothing colors in the patient rooms to make recovery as pleasant as possible. 

A seven-story medical office building is located across the medical boulevard from the hospital with an enclosed bridge connecting the two. For patient and staff convenience, a six-level, 1,080 vehicle parking structure is situated near the professional office building and main hospital entrance.
