  • There has been a shift in perceptions about what a community medical center can provide making it possible to keep patients in their community rather than sending them to the Dallas campus.
  • An executive committee was formed to look at the transfer center process as a whole.
  • Baylor Scott and White has started the process of centralizing patient placement which will provide quicker access to bed availability at the different campuses.
