The largest not-for-profit health care system in Texas, and one of the largest in the United States, Baylor Scott & White Health was born from the coming together of Baylor Health Care System and Scott & White Healthcare.
“The new ‘mark’ represents the coming together of many providers with one focus—the patient we serve, at the center of our efforts,” said Joel Allison, chief executive officer of Baylor Scott & White Health.

“Its cross shape pays respect to the Christian heritage of the organization. And, like a compass, its four directions point to potential expansion,” said Allison.

Baylor Scott & White Health includes 43 hospitals, more than 500 patient care sites, more than 6,000 affiliated physicians, 34,000 employees and the Scott & White health plan.
