PHOENIX — Phoenix Children’s is preparing to open a new facility this summer at Bell Bank Park that caters to young athletes and other children in the East Valley.

The 3,915-square-foot facility at the park will offer pediatric-specific medical services to injured athletes, as well as provide on-call support for athletic trainers on the field or court during games, according to a press release.

Pediatric sports medicine specialists will work in the clinic, which will operate from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.

“Kids and teens have different needs, medically and developmentally, than adults, and they deserve care that’s right-sized for them,” Jeffrey Vaughn, orthopedic surgeon at Phoenix Children’s, said in the release.

“This clinic will be staffed by doctors, nurses, physical therapists and other health care professionals who have special training in caring for children and adolescents.”

Children of all ages can stop by the urgent care from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends, the release said.

“With the number of athletes training here daily, we’re fortunate that Phoenix Children’s will be opening a treatment center here to help our athletes return to competition and provide best practices for staying in shape and nourishment,” Brett Miller, president of Bell Bank Park, said in the release.

The park has indoor and outdoor facilities used for a range of sports, as well as a multipurpose arena and outdoor lawn for concerts and events.

We want to hear from you.
