VA Acquires Texas Community Hospital to Fight COVID-19, Care for Veterans in Future

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs acquired the former Garland-Baylor, Scott & White hospital, located in Garland, Texas, to increase its capacity to care for veterans.

The 470,000-square-foot facility was donated by Baylor, Scott & White and will eventually serve as an outpatient and specialty care clinic within the VA North Texas Health Care System.

Initially, the facility will be used as an inpatient overflow unit with capacity for 100 beds to treat COVID-19 cases. Later care will expand care for the 184,000 North Texas veterans, to meet the growing demand for VA healthcare in that area.
