The gynecology outpatient clinic is situated on the third floor of the Texas Children's Hospital Pavilion for Women. This facility opened in 2011 and represents the latest design in outpatient care. All medical records are electronic allowing web access from any location for improved patient care and the clinic is fully equipped with specialized hysteroscopic equipment, ultrasound, and endometrial ablation equipment as well as the nursing and ancillary staff to accommodate the volume and variety of patients seen.
Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center has eight operating rooms dedicated to gynecology. One is equipped for live telesurgery transmission. Two rooms are used for robotic surgery. The main operating suite (building 25 on the map) houses 25 state-of-the-art operating rooms that are functional 24 hours a day. In addition, the John M. O’Quinn Tower at Baylor St. Luke’s houses another ambulatory operating suite with 12 ORs. Both allow our service the flexibility to operate on patients whenever necessary.
