Our Children’s House is the name for Baylor Scott & White Health’s pediatric program that treats kids with special healthcare needs. Earlier this month, Baylor, the largest nonprofit health system in the state, announced plans to stop providing inpatient services there and filed a WARN letter with the Texas Workforce Commission announcing plans to lay off 181 Our Children’s House employees.
No longer: Children’s Health System of Texas, formerly known as Children’s Medical Center Dallas, has swooped in and signed a binding term sheet to acquire it. The deal is expected to close on September 15. Children’s will take over the main facility on Baylor’s flagship near downtown, as well as outpatient clinics in Allen, Frisco, Grapevine, Irving, Las Colinas, Plano, Rockwall, and Waxahachie. They’re also retaining all of the employees.
