Fort Worth hospital gives gift cards to patients who wait too long

Baylor All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth has an offer for patients who get grumpy after cooling their heels too long in a doctor’s waiting room.

The hospital is promoting a 15-minute guarantee for users of its outpatient imaging services: If your exam doesn’t begin within 15 minutes of the scheduled appointment time, you get a $25 gift card to either Pappasito’s Cantina or Starbucks.

The deal applies at three locations: a Baylor imaging center on Rosedale Avenue; the downtown hospital on Eighth Avenue; and Baylor Medical Center at Southwest Fort Worth, on Oakmont Boulevard.

Imaging services include X-rays, bone density tests, and CT, MRI, and ultrasound scans.
