Baylor Scott & White Sports Therapy & Research officially opened its 300,000-square-foot medical and sports performance facility at The Star in Frisco Wednesday.

The new facility is part of a partnership between Baylor Scott & White, the Dallas Cowboys and Frisco ISD. Construction on the facility began in June 2016 and it includes an imaging center, sports performance center program, urgent care center, outpatient rehabilitation, pharmacy and brain injury program.

“Baylor Scott & White Sports Therapy & Research at The Star represents our commitment to preventing illness and injuries before they happen,” said Jim Hinton, Baylor Scott & White Health CEO. “The goal of this collaboration with the Dallas Cowboys and Frisco ISD is to improve sports safety for athletes of all levels. This facility will use technology to help athletes understand, monitor and improve performance, and will offer a comprehensive approach to diagnosis, treatment and recovery.”

The facility includes a sports concussion center in which a team will research individualized treatment of sports-related concussion in athletes of all ages.

Gatorade Sports Science Institute also has a center in the facility that is a full-service sports performance and nutrition lab focused on helping athletes optimize health and performance through research and education. The Frisco lab is the third GSSI location in the United States.

The facility also incorporates technology such as Fusionetics, an evidence-based platform to help optimize athletic performance, reduce injuries and speed up recovery time.

As part of the partnership with FISD, Baylor Scott & White will provide a team of physicians for FISD high schools, concussion experts on the sideline for all varsity home football teams, and pre-participation physicals.

“It’s important that our local student athletes at [FISD] have access to the latest technology and most-skilled hands to receive the best training and treatment to perform at the highest possible levels,” Jerry Jones, Jr. said.
