Mary Shiels Hospital provided service to the community for 47 years. It was founded by Mary Shiels who served as the business office manager for several eye, ear, nose and throat (EENT) surgeons who had offices near the Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas campus. In 1942, as the ENT practice dissolved, Mary Shiels offered to lease the building and re-open it as a hospital specializing in ENT surgical care. She borrowed $1,000 from a local bank and opened what would eventually become Mary Shiels Hospital.
At the time, Mary Shiels was a single working mother of two boys, Henry and Rob, the sole caregiver for her elderly parents, and one of very few professional women who owned their own business. In 1963, Mary Shiels used her home as collateral for a loan to purchase a plot of land on Lemmon Avenue on which Mary Shiels Hospital was built. She and one of her sons served as administrators of the hospital for decades.
Constructed on land adjacent to the former Mary Shiels Hospital, which was rebranded Baylor Medical Center at Uptown in August 2010, the new Baylor Uptown replaces this older facility. The joint venture purchased Mary Shiels Hospital in 2003 and construction began in 2009 on the replacement facility.
