Community invited to fun event to celebrate new facility

FRISCO, Texas – Babies are coming to Medical City Frisco! This month, Medical City Frisco begins caring for mothers and babies for the first time. To celebrate, area women are invited to a free and fun girls’ night out “Sip & See” on Thursday, Oct. 11, 5-7:30 pm.

Event attendees can tour Medical City Frisco’s new $21.6 million women’s services facilities, enjoy light bites and sips, check out the latest trends in maternity fashions – presented by celebrity stylist Laurie Graham and local expectant moms, meet OB-GYN physicians, and even discover the healing properties of essential oils for moms and babies. Information will be available about breastfeeding support, childbirth classes and infant CPR classes.

The dedicated women’s unit on the hospital’s third and fourth floors enables Medical City Frisco to deliver babies in 13 delivery and recovery rooms. The unit also features a six-bed, Level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), three operating rooms and a 10-bed nursery. Community members may RSVP for the Sip & See at MedicalCityFrisco.com/RSVP.

The opening of the Medical City Frisco women’s services unit coincides with a major capital investment initiative of more than $1.7 billion spent or committed over four years across the Medical City Healthcare system. Investments include expansion and improvements to existing hospitals, new services such as burn and trauma care, upgraded technology and the purchase of new facilities. Since opening in April 2016, Medical City Frisco’s services have grown to include a cardiac catherization lab, along with an expanded emergency department, surgical robots and additional specialty surgical services, including weight loss surgery. The new women’s services unit further supports the hospital's mission and dedication to the care and improvement of human life.
