Construction has started on a game-changing sports medicine, research and performance facility in Frisco.
The Dallas Cowboys, along with Baylor Scott & White Health, broke ground Wednesday on the 300,000-square-foot campus at The Star, the new home of the Dallas Cowboys corporate headquarters.
"With a focus on preventing injuries and keeping people healthy, the goal of Baylor Scott & White Sports Therapy & Research at The Star is to make North Texas the safest place in the country to play sports," said Joel Allison, president and CEO of Baylor Scott & White Health.
"This initiative is a perfect complement to Baylor Scott & White's broader strategy of serving communities, with a focus on overall health and wellness," Allison said.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The campus at The Star in Frisco will include an ambulatory surgery center, diagnostic imaging, a sports performance program, an urgent care center, outpatient rehabilitation and a pharmacy.
"It's with wonderful pride when I think about the job that these guys are doing and the job they will do because they're doing it for us. They're doing it for the youth," said Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
The first-of-its kind collaboration between an NFL team, a health system and a school district, is expected to open in early 2018.
