Baylor Scott & White Health
The largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas, and one of the largest in the country, Baylor Scott & White Health established its own logistics and distribution operation in Temple, Texas, to support its healthcare initiatives.
Leveraging low business costs and an unparalleled transportation network, and with ingenuity and efficiency in mind, Baylor Scott & White Health consolidated its massive inventory of medical goods into one distribution center minutes from the Temple Medical and Educational District.
The new $20 million facility, which combined operations from Central and North Texas, was completed in 2016 and ushered in about 40 new jobs.
The placement of this distribution center in Temple is strategic for our entire system.
