Baylor Scott and White’s new sports med facility at The Star in Frisco, home of the Dallas Cowboys corporate headquarters.
Executives from the Dallas Cowboys and Baylor Scott & White Health on Wednesday broke ground in Frisco on a new sports medicine facility at The Star, the NFL organization’s upcoming mixed used development. The 300,000 square foot center will offer treatment, research, and wellness services for athletes of all ages when it opens in 2018.
After Frisco Mayor Maher Maso opened the proceedings, Baylor Scott and White CEO Joel Allison took the podium and laid out the vision for the project. It’s said to be the first collaboration between an NFL team, a health system, and a school district.
“This facility is designed to support the communities we serve by helping them get active, stay active and take care of themselves. By partnering with the Cowboys and Frisco ISD we hope to make North Texas the safest place in the country to play sports,” said Allison.
