North Texas To Be Safest Place To Play Sports
Baylor Scott & White Health, the largest not-for-profit health care system in Texas, together with the Dallas Cowboys, broke ground today on a game-changing sports medicine, research and performance facility that will be located at The Star in Frisco, home of the new Dallas Cowboys World Corporate Headquarters.
The 300,000 square-foot campus, to be named Baylor Scott & White Sports Therapy & Research at The Star , will focus on injury prevention, research and wellness for athletes of all levels, and is expected to become a nationally recognized model for the holistic treatment of physically active individuals upon its completion in early 2018. It is also a first-of-its kind collaboration between an NFL team, a health system and a school district. It was also announced that  a concussion specialist will also be on the sidelines of every Frisco ISD football game played at The Star.

"The Cowboys are honored to team up with Baylor Scott & White Health to bring together two marquee brands in sports and medicine," Jerry Jones, Jr., Chief Sales and Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Dallas Cowboys. " With the largest not-for-profit health care system in Texas, we are paving the way for a new age in health and safety for athletes.  Baylor Scott & White Sports Therapy and Research at The Star will become the standard-bearer for innovating and improving the future of sports on a global level."
