The network comprises four facilities in Tyler and Longview, including a new urgent care clinic in Tyler that’s open six days a week. The hospital’s new $27 million state-of-the-art hospital offers the latest in surgical and noninvasive procedures using cutting-edge technology to provide diagnoses, treatment and recovery, including 21st-century technologies for surgical pain relief procedures. Construction is currently underway on Baylor Scott & White Sports
and Orthopedic Center, a 106,000-square-foot, four-story facility offering under one roof a full spectrum of sports medicine and sports performance services for athletes of all ages.

Baylor Scott & White Texas Spine & Joint Hospital was formed by the merger of three entities in 2017 to enable physicians and other caregivers to provide patients throughout East Texas increasingly coordinated care, and allow providers to easily access quality clinical resources.
