Frisco, texas hospitals?

  1. Hey everyone,

    Can anyone give me any insight on the hospitals in the Allen, Frisco, McKinney, and Plano area? Working conditions and/or salaries?


    Thank You,

    These places are around Dallas and expect the pay is lesser than in Dallas.

    I would say the last response is wrong. North Dallas facilities mostly pay more than in Dallas. I loved working at Medical Center Plano. They paid well there and they care about their nurses. I have heard good things about all other Baylor facilites. I would avoid HealthSouth Rehab facilites. They pay well but the nurse to pt ratio at night can be 1:10. I know this because I was told by the DON during an interview last month. Also friends of mine that worked there never had anything good to say about it. I hope this helps. All of those places you listed are nice to live in as well.

    Your reply would make more sense to me. Since the suburbs north of Dallas (Plano, Frisco, Allen, McKinney) are pricier as far as cost of living is concerned, then the hospitals in and around these cities would need to pay competitively to attract and retain staff.

    The reality is that life in Frisco is more expensive than it is in South Dallas.

    But life in uptown/M-Streets/ Lakewood/ Park Cities is a lot more expensive compared to comparable housing in Frisco! I would even venture to say that for the price of a house in South Dallas, you could get something nicer and bigger in Frisco. If the cost of living weren't cheaper in the suburbs, then everyone wouldn't be moving out there and commuting to work in Dallas every day! I would love to stay in Dallas forever, but when the time comes for me to get married and have children, I'm afraid I might have to venture out to the suburbs for more square footage and good, free (a.k.a, public) schools...
