The Baylor Health Care System (BHCS) offers an array of health care services throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. BHCS owns, operates, or is affiliated with more than 30 acute care and specialty hospitals, including the Baylor University Medical Center complex, one of the state's major teaching and referral facilities. Other facilities include nearly 30 surgery centers and some 400 physician and outpatient care centers, as well as senior health clinics, pharmacies, and research labs. The faith-based (with Baptist roots), non-for-profit system also provides home health care and specialized pediatric services. BHCS merged with Scott & White Healthcare to form Baylor Scott & White Health.
