More than 2.5 million children are treated each year for sport-related injuries. In response to this increasingly growing number, Dr. Andrews, co-founder of the Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center, collaborated with Children’s Health to create a premier pediatric Sports Medicine Health and Wellness Complex that aims to greatly reduce the number of children’s injuries and provide educational programs for wellness and injury prevention.
The four-story Specialty Center II is located on the Plano Health Campus and includes an embedded Ambulatory Surgical Center with eight operating rooms. This facility continues the mission of Children’s Health to “Make life better for children” through the advancement of additional clinics, outpatient imaging and community based physician practices. In addition, the Specialty Center II contains both a leading sports training center and an integrated sports rehab facility utilizing state-of-the-art therapies for both wellness and recovery.
The Andrew’s Institute occupies the first two levels of the building. In addition to the Ambulatory Surgical Center, outpatient services offered at the facility include athletic performance training, physical therapy, outpatient imaging, and pediatric orthopaedics clinics. Patients have access to a continuum of care beginning with wellness training and nutrition counseling to surgery, rehabilitation and therapy. The outdoor athletic performance training field has an observation platform for family viewing and performance evaluation.
