Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital has been designed to provide a place of healing, calming and spirituality for everyone involved in the cancer journey. The surroundings are attractive, and well-designed rooms are larger to accommodate family members. Additional amenities have been introduced to ensure the environment is attractive and convenient.
Alan M. Miller, MD, PhD, chief of oncology, Baylor Health Care System, and medical director, Baylor Sammons Cancer Center, commented about the stress undergone by patients who are thrust into unfamiliar surroundings: “The more that can be done to ease the strangeness and discomfort of the surroundings, the easier it is for patients to concentrate on what they need to do to get well.”
Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital, the first dedicated cancer hospital in North Texas and only the second in the state, has begun its staged opening as part of the expansion of oncology services at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.

Oncology Evaluation and Treatment Center
As the last part of phase I, an infusion center with 12 infusion chairs and 4 infusion beds opened in March 2012.
The Oncology Evaluation and Treatment Center, on the first floor, is an exciting new service that will be available after hours (Monday-Friday 4 p.m. to 7 a.m. and Friday 4 p.m. to Monday 7 a.m.) for established oncology patients at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas who are sick or otherwise in need of assistance.
Most cancer patients who experience an unexpected health crisis may end up in a hospital emergency room, where appropriate treatment may be delayed and they are exposed to others. By coming directly to the Oncology Evaluation and Treatment Center, our cancer patients will be able to avoid the inconvenience and risks of the emergency room setting, saving time and possibly removing the need for a hospital admission if problems can be taken care of in this walk-in setting.
