I can think of 7 hospitals just in McKinney and Frisco and 3 more just beyond:

McKinney Medical Center: The original hospital for the area, quite a large complex, near 75 and 121.

Baylor McKinney: Corner of Lake Forest and 380, very close to Prosper. Beautiful massive new complex.

Baylor Frisco, mentioned earlier. Not to nitpick the previous poster, but it faces Warren, not Legacy, but very near Legacy. Someone might get lost looking for it on Legacy.

Centennial Medical Center, Frisco: NE corner of 121 and Coit

The following three are relatively new and smaller than the ones above, probably specialty hospitals. Sorry I don't know much about them:

Victory Medical Center, Craig Ranch, McKinney: On Alma just north of 121.

Harris Methodist, McKinney: corner of Stonebridge and Eldorado in west McKinney, just east of Custer.

Forest Park Medical Center: Just opened in Frisco Square, Main Street and DNT.

There are two more just outside these two cities, Texas Health Presbyterian Plano, just south of Frisco, Park and DNT and THP Allen, Exchange and 75, just south of McKinney. Also Children's hospital on Preston in Plano is just a mile or so south of 121, very convenient to Frisco/Prosper/McKinney.

Can't imagine that between these anyone isn't completely covered for any kind of medical need.

U know Centennial is great too. We had ours few years ago and it was very upscale and nice. Great nurses and the OBGYN was super awesome

FYI: Victory and Forest Park are speciality hospitals, not general. Victory does rehab and Forest Park does boutique surgeries.

If I needed medical care up there, I would go to one of the Baylors, or Harris Methodist.

Was wondering, thanks for the info. Victory does have an emergency room, don't know why a rehab hospital would have an emergency room.

Harris Methodist is very nice looking but the smallest of all, at least to the casual observer driving by.... smaller than Forest Park and Victory.

An ER is required for a facility to be declared a "hospital" by The Joint Commission. Most rehab hospitals do not want their ER to actually be used by patients, but some of them are cashing in on the "freestanding ER" business and are using it as a revenue generator.

I know this is a somewhat "old" thread, so forgive me in advance, but something happened to a friend of ours that made me want to comment on this thread. Friends of ours out in Melissa (right outside McKinney) have a son who is asthmatic. He had an attack and was rushed to the nearest hospital in McKinney (dont know which one). Turns out that the attach he had was so bad that the hospital wasnt equiped to deal with it. Not a big deal except we then heard that no other hospital in Collin County could deal with it either. The kid had to be Careflighted down to Children's in Dallas. Think about that for a second. It's not as if we are talking about emergency heart surgery here, we are talking about ASTHMA. Really makes me wonder about the quality of hospitals in Collin County.

I'm not sure what you're asking about exactly. I work at Baylor Mckinney in the ER as the doc, and I think that hospital is good, but we transfer out our kids since we don't have peds there. So, although it's a great hospital and a nice and new facility - if you're asking about kids specific hospital, this may not be the one.

Just an example. Same thing goes for many of the other hospitals in the area.

People can die from asthma attacks. It IS every bit as serious as a heart attack. Also note comment above about pediatric services. Every instrument is smaller than adult sizes.

Not necessarily that a hospital is not equipped to deal with an asthma attack. Any of the hospital ERs I work at can deal with any asthma attack. The regimen is there. The problem is that if the ER needs to admit you, you will need to be careflighted or ambulanced to Childrens Dallas or Childrens Legacy in Plano.

Those are your 2 big kiddie hospitals.

I have worked in pediatric ERs and adult ERs... we can handle any and all asthma attacks.

It has NOTHING to do with the "quality" or hospitals in Colin County.
