Texas Scottish Rite Hospital unveils new Frisco

 40-acre campus

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children began work on its new Frisco campus with a ceremonial groundbreaking on Wednesday, which will bring a new five-story, 345,000-square-foot ambulatory care facility to North Texas.
The new facility will be located within 10 acres of a 40-acre tract at the northeast corner of Lebanon Road and the Dallas North Tollway.
Scottish Rite Hospital President and CEO Robert L. Walker said the new facility would help fulfill a growing need for patient care in North Texas.
"We are excited to be coming to Frisco, where we will continue to give children back their childhood in this vibrant community," Walker said, in a statement.
About 25 percent of Scottish Rite Hospital patients come from cities north of Dallas and the new facility is expected to help ease the travel burden.
The campus will be anchored by the Center for Excellence in Sports Medicine, which is led by Dr. Philip Wilson. It will provide specialized treatment for sports-related orthopedic injuries and concussions.
