Our History

Our journey began as the Gaston Episcopal Hospital. In 1978, the then general community hospital needed to expand to keep pace with the needs of modern medicine. Plans were made for a new four-story hospital to be built on Gaston Avenue and connect via tunnel to Baylor University Medical Center. Construction began on the new Gaston Episcopal Hospital in 1980 and the new facility was dedicated in April of 1982.


Gaston Episcopal Hospital merged with Baylor Healthcare System and became Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation at Gaston Episcopal Hospital. 


Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation and Select Medical Corporation form a joint venture to provide an expanded network of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation care across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. 


Baylor Health Care System and Scott & White Healthcare join forces to create a new health system, Baylor Scott & White Health, becoming the largest not-for-profit health care system in the state of Texas. 


Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation becomes Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation.

Since forming our partnership with Select Medical, Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation has grown from one rehabilitation facility, to three stand-alone rehabilitation hospitals, two rehabilitation units, more than 65 outpatient therapy centers and a full-service home health division.
