Ask The Mayor


Mayor Hal Richards

Q. - A lot of senior citizens are wondering what the status is regarding the building of the Baylor Hospital on I-20 and also the latest on our own local hospital. . . if and when it is going to re-open. Thanks.

Answer - Thank you for your question. We get a lot of questions about Baylor’s plans and about the possible opening of the hospital.


Baylor Healthcare System and Scott and White are involved in a merger of their two organizations. The joining of these two organizations is a huge project and the leaders of these organizations are very focused on that work now.


What we do know is that Baylor is committed to building a facility on the site they own in Terrell. Baylor Healthcare System is the owner of a 50 acre tract of land at the corner of Spur 557 and IH 20. In cooperation with an adjacent land owner, Baylor Healthcare is participating in a total of $9.6 million in improvements. Some of these expenditures have already occurred.


The widening of FM148 to 4 lanes and construction of an exit ramp on IH 20 are two key projects. Both of these roadway projects are scheduled for completion by the end of 2014. All of these projects must be done to allow Baylor’s project and other development to go to construction.


As far as the reopening of the hospital goes, the Terrell Hospital Advisory Board is intensely screening a number of applicants. Applicants to operate the hospital continue to come forward with new plans and proposals to re-open the hospital. Everyone involved in this process is determined that a new operator will be able to provide high quality care to our citizens for years to come.




Hal Richards, Mayor
