Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano has opened a 6,500 square-foot sports medicine clinic at Toyota Stadium, located at 9200 World Cup Way in Frisco. The new clinic, which is called Texas Health Ben Hogan Sports Medicine Plano, is the seventh Texas Health clinic to bear the name of champion golfer and native Texan, Ben Hogan.
Ben Hogan Sport Medicine has been a well-known and trusted name for treating athletes in the Fort Worth area since Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth opened the Ben Hogan Center to focus on sports medicine in 2003. Ben Hogan locations include outpatient concussion clinics and sports physical therapy, all focused on one goal: providing athletes advanced treatments and technology paired with highly-skilled sports medicine physicians on the medical staff and caregivers.
“Texas Health Resources is committed to the health of athletes across North Texas, so we could not be more excited about bringing the expertise of a Ben Hogan clinic to this community,” said Brett S. McClung, FACHE, executive vice president and North Zone operations leader for Texas Health Resources. “Our goal is to provide athletes with the tools to perform at the top of their game whether they are a high school, college or professional athlete, or a weekend warrior.”
Texas Health Plano, which is part of the Texas Health Resources system, is now FC Dallas’ exclusive health care provider with the Ben Hogan Sports Medicine Plano clinic providing medical services for FC Dallas youth and professional athletes. Dr. James Walter, orthopedic physician on the medical staff at Texas Health Plano, serves as the team physician. In addition, Texas Health athletic trainers serve the professional team, academy teams, and each major FC Dallas and North Texas Soccer Association tournament, as well as other special events at Toyota Soccer Center and other FC Dallas events across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
“We have entrusted the care of our athletes to Texas Health for the last few years, and having brought this partnership to a new level during the last year, we have seen great results,” said FC Dallas President Dan Hunt. “They have built a truly fantastic clinic here at Toyota Stadium, and we see it in use every day by athletes of all ages and sports in North Texas.”
The facility features a licensed sports medicine staff, with experience treating sports related injuries. The new center also includes a dedicated area for sports-specific functional training, which is not typically found in other physical therapy establishments. Functional training is a hybrid of traditional workouts with physical therapy designed to train muscles to work together making everyday activities and movements easier. Sports psychology and sport nutrition services are also offered.
“In North Texas, we’re known for our love of sports,” said Josh Floren, FACHE, interim president at Texas Health Plano. “Expanding our sports medicine care through this new clinic supports our mission to improve the health of the communities we’re privileged to serve.”
