  • HKS completed the Scottish Rite for Children Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center’s Frisco Campus to meet the growing demand in the area of North Dallas, Texas.

    For the past 97 years, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has been a leader in the health care community and at the forefront of expertise and innovation in pediatric orthopedics. After nearly a century at the same Dallas location, the hospital is taking a historic step to expand its presence in North Texas by opening a second facility in Frisco. As we recognized the incredible growth in North Dallas, as well as the booming sports scene in the area, we chose Frisco as our home for the new Scottish Rite for Children Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center. The state-of-the-art facility is anchored by our Center for Excellence in Sports Medicine.

    The Center for Excellence in Sports Medicine has been caring for young athletes throughout the area for several years, but the new campus gives our physicians access to numerous features and resources to enhance the patient experience. The facility includes a Movement Science Lab, a large therapy area, a turfed field for training and everything our physicians need to treat pediatric athletes.

    The Movement Science Lab is a stunning, unique feature of the new facility. The lab uses leading-edge technology to analyze an athlete’s movements using enhanced video-motion technology designed for the analysis of sport-specific movements and addressing general orthopedic cases. It has the ability to analyze everything from a patient’s walking pattern to a young baseball player’s pitching motion. It also houses a running track that leads into the space from the outdoors via retractable doors.

    A sports therapy field is located adjacent to the Movement Science Lab. It is made with artificial turf containing highly specialized infill material to keep the temperature lower than traditional turfs. The field complements lab analysis functions as well as providing a space for training, rehabilitation and injury prevention activities.

    With these innovations and medical expertise, our team specializes in developing individualized treatment plans – consistent with our objective of treating the whole child – to provide the best outcomes for each young athlete. Therefore, from injury prevention to surgery and physical therapy, every step of the recovery process is addressed at Scottish Rite for Children.

    While the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center will be anchored in sports medicine, the facility is designed to provide many of the same services found at our Dallas campus. This allows us to meet the needs of each child who comes through our doors.

    To that end, the Frisco campus offers orthopedic outpatient clinics, a fracture clinic with walk-in hours and a physical therapy gym. Additionally, the Frisco facility includes hand, rheumatology, orthotics and prosthetics services as well as sports, occupational and physical therapy. The space has two operating rooms for day surgeries, an on-site radiology facility and dedicated space for psychology, infusion and other ancillary patient resources to support the integrated care model designed by the hospital years ago. After years of planning and two years of construction, the long-awaited Scottish Rite for Children Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center has arrived. October marks the historic milestone opening of the Frisco campus.
