Athletes and weekend warriors across North Texas now have access to orthopedic surgeons, rehabilitation for injuries, and performance training in one convenient location. The Texas Health Resources facility opened in south Arlington on Tuesday, August 1, and services will continue to be added through the end of the year.

'Texas Health is continually looking for opportunities to enhance the services we provide to our community,' said Brett McClung, executive vice president and chief of north zone operations. 'This model of care allows us to meet our consumers where they are and be a reliable resource through their journey.'

Sideline Orthopedics and Sports, Texas Health Sports Medicine, and Athlete Training and Health (ATH) are collaborating to provide care for athletes from the moment of injury to the moment they return to play and beyond. The facility has on-site orthopedic specialists, rehabilitation services and performance training for athletes of all levels.

'We're excited about the improved coordination of care this comprehensive sports center allows us to provide for athletes,' said Blake Kretz, president at Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital. 'This collaboration demonstrates our commitment to elevating the level of care for sports related injuries in one convenient package.'

Athlete Training and Health occupies 15,000 of the 25,000-square-foot facility, which is located at 4401 Park Springs Blvd., near the Interstate 20 Frontage Road. Texas Health Sports Medicine, slated to open late fall, will occupy the remaining 10,000 square feet inside the facility.

'We are committed to motivating athletes to be the best version of themselves possible,' said Eric Kluft, vice president of Performance Administration at ATH. 'Collaborating with Texas Health Sports Medicine gives us an opportunity to help athletes return to a level of performance necessary to play or enhance their abilities.'
