Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery


At Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery, we offer a range of advanced services such as robotic surgery and breast MRI. 

Designed with a boutique hotel in mind, patients enjoy a more comfortable setting than what is typically offered in a large, full-service traditional hospital. From up-close parking to room service meals prepared by a culinary trained chef, our entire hospital staff provides compassionate care that is focused on you and your family.  

The hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission, an independent, not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies health care firms and is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

At Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery, our method of care is based on the notion that the patient and the family are the central focus. Members of our health care team strive to understand what is important to you, the patient, and actively engage you in all aspects of care and support a culture of caring and healing.

Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery is a joint venture owned by Texas Health Resources and physicians dedicated to the community and meets the definition under federal law of physician-owned hospital. Physicians on the medical staff practice independently and are not employees or agents of the hospital.  To download a list of the physician partners, click here.

Advanced Technology

Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery has a commitment to bring advanced technology to our patients.

Robotic Surgery (1)Robotic Surgery

Surgeons on the medical staff at Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery have access to the da Vinci® Surgical System*, robotic technology that allows surgeons to perform complex procedures with small incisions and far greater precision.

With da Vinci, small incisions are used to insert miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortable at the da Vinci console, the surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site inside your body. At the same time, the latest robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci instruments.

Although it is often called a "robot", the da Vinci Vinci System cannot move or operate on its own - the surgeon is 100% in control. For many, surgery performed using the system has a number of benefits including smaller incisions, less pain, less blood loss, shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery and a faster return to normal activities.


Your physician may suggest an MRI with the 3T technology. The 3T MRI is one of the most powerful and sophisticated MRI scanners currently available. The "T" in 3T MRI stands for Tesla, the unit of measurement of magnetic field strength. 3T systems generate a magnetic field twice as strong as traditional MRI scanners and many times the strength of some open MRI systems. The 3T's stronger magnetic field produces images of exceptional clarity and anatomical detail in less time. At Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery, we offer a wide-bore system to accommodate large patients and patients with claustrophobia.

Nurse White Board System

Our interactive whiteboard system improves patient satisfaction by helping the patient see an up-to-date personalized care plan that’s easy to understand. The white board system is used on our inpatient unit and is organized into patient-centered categories such as “My Team” and “Who is Taking Care of Me” with a photo of the caregiver. Outside the room, caregivers have access to the system that enables them to easily update the information.


*All surgery presents risk, including da Vinci Surgery. Results, including cosmetic results, may vary. Serious complications may occur may occur in any surgery, up to and including death. Examples of serious and life-threatening complications, which may require hospitalization, include injury to tissues or organs; bleeding; infection, and internal scarring that can cause long-lasting dysfunction or pain. Temporary pain or nerve injury has been linked to the inverted position often used during abdominal and pelvic surgery. Patients should understand that risks of surgery include potential for human error and potential for equipment failure. Risk specific to minimally invasive surgery may include: a longer operative time; the need to convert the procedure to an open approach; or the need for additional or larger incision sites. Converting the procedure to open could mean a longer operative time, long time under anesthesia, and could lead to increased complications. Research suggests that there may be an increased risk of incision-site hernia with single-incision surgery. Patients who bleed easily, have abnormal blood clotting, are pregnant or morbidly obese are typically not candidates for minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci Surgery. Other surgical approaches are available. Patients should review the risks associated with all surgical approaches. They should talk to their doctors about their surgical experience and to decide if da Vinci is right for them.
