Updates About Coronavirus Disease

At Scottish Rite for Children, the safety of our patients and Staff is our number one priority. We continue to closely monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease and to closely follow the guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as the community standards determined by state and local government leaders and the Health and Human Services departments. 

In line with Governor Greg Abbott’s latest Executive Order, we have begun a phased approach to gradually resume all patient activity. The safety precautions put in place at both of our campuses to mitigate the spread of the disease will be adhered to as we evolve to safely expand treatment for more patients seeking our care. That means limiting access to our facilities, enhancing our cleaning and sanitation practices, following social distancing practices and using appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).

Our patient families may have questions about returning to Scottish Rite for Children at this time, so we have provided information below to ensure you we are doing everything possible to protect your family and our Staff as we bring our patients and families back.

Patient and Family Safety Information
Here are a few things you need to know when you arrive for an appointment at our Dallas or Frisco campus:
  • Visitor restrictions: We are limiting patient families to only one healthy parent or guardian per patient. Siblings and minors are not permitted to visit.
  • Masks: We are asking all visitors to wear face coverings. Masks are available during screening at the Main Entrance for patients and their families who do not have masks. These masks do not need to be returned.
  • Screening: All families will have their temperature taken with a touchless, infrared thermometer. You will be asked a series of questions regarding symptoms and travel. Once requirements have been met, the patient and the family member will be required to apply hand sanitizer. 
  • Social distancing: We ask that you continue to social distance even while wearing your mask. 
We are excited to welcome you back and we are committed to keeping you safe. Please view this video about what to expect when you return to Scottish Rite for Children.

If you are not ready to come back to our campus, telemedicine options through an on-line virtual visit may be available. Please contact our Scheduling department for more information – Dallas: 214-559-7400 and Frisco: 469-515-7100.
