Baylor Frisco COVID-19 Safety Measures

As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic together, we are continually developing new protocols with your safety and convenience in mind. We have implemented expanded patient and visitor precautions, including visitation and mask policies and screening at entry points.

Elective Surgery

We’re taking extra care so that you don’t need to delay your surgery

We have built a safety plan designed to evaluate each patient’s case independently as we determine the need for certain safety measures, including COVID-19 testing. All patients will be tested for active infection and caregivers will take appropriate measures consistent with CDC guidelines.
