BUDA, TX (Oct. 15, 2019) — Baylor Scott & White Health celebrated the opening of its new medical center located in Buda. The new medical center is the first full-service hospital in Hays County under the Baylor Scott & White name. While the medical center opened its doors in late September, an official ribbon cutting ceremony with the Buda Area Chamber of Commerce was held on Tuesday, Oct. 15 to celebrate the opening.
“With the opening of Baylor Scott & White’s Medical Center, Buda residents now have the option to seek the services provided by a full-service hospital in their own community. This includes primary care, specialty care, and hospital services,” said Buda Mayor George Haehn. “The City of Buda looks forward to a long and healthy relationship with Baylor Scott & White.”

The medical center will add at least 150 jobs within the first four years of operation. Additional services will be added at the 75,000+ square foot facility as needed.
“This is our first medical center to open this far south in the State of Texas, so we are very proud of that,” said Jay Fox, president, Baylor Scott & White Austin/Round Rock region. “We will continue to expand and grow to make sure that we can take care of all the medical needs of the individuals that live in this area.”
