Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery

About THCDS

At Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery, we’ve combined the expertise of some of the area's most respected physicians with advanced technology and high-quality health care.

Designed with a boutique hotel in mind, we offer 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 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.

Pediatric Sleep Institute

A good night’s sleep is essential for a child’s development. However some children don’t get the rest they require due to breathing issues, behavioral disorders, and other conditions that interrupt normal sleep patterns. At the Pediatric Sleep Institute in Plano (a department of Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery) physicians on the medical staff offer comprehensive evaluation of Neurology and Sleep and Wake Disorders in children ages six months to 18 years of age.

For those requiring an overnight sleep study, we have taken great care to create a facility that provides a relaxing atmosphere for you and your child. Overnight suites offer a tranquil and therapeutic setting for both patient and caregiver.

Our technicians and physicians are fully trained to understand and accommodate your concerns and the needs of your child. We are dedicated to providing your family with genuine care and comfort.

We want you and your child to sleep well.
