OTHER AREAS OF TREATMENT
Our hospital understands that the conditions facing our patients can be stressful. The Psychology department helps patients and their families deal with the stress constructively, offering individual and family counseling. The purpose of the Psychology department is to provide quality clinical care and promote healthy child development, despite the stress and demands associated with a health-related condition. Licensed psychologists and psychology trainees with expertise in pediatric psychology and behavioral health coordinate and participate in interdisciplinary health care, related teams, hospital committees and research. Direct clinical inpatient and outpatient services are provided to Scottish Rite Hospital patients, along with their families and caregivers.
Who We Serve
- Scottish Rite Hospital patients are referred by medical staff and seen during clinic visits and inpatient hospitalizations, or as outpatients in the Psychology department.
- Patients are referred for a number of reasons, including preoperative preparation and planning, education, adjustment related to new diagnoses and/or mental health needs.
- In a given month, the Psychology department sees approximately 250 patients with nearly 60 new referrals each month.
Our Psychology department offers predoctoral and postdoctoral training opportunities in psychology. All psychologists are also members of the faculty in the Department of Psychiatry at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Learn more about our Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
Our advanced imaging equipment includes a state-of-the-art CT scanner, a high field strength MRI scanner housed in the hospital’s Seay/Pickens MRI Center, ultrasound, low-dose digital fluoroscopy and multiple X-ray rooms and OR suites with computed radiography capabilities. The hospital’s PACS (picture archive and communication system) allows physicians, nurses and other medical staff to access your child’s medical images throughout the campus.
Scottish Rite Hospital is only the fourth hospital in Texas to employ an advanced imaging technology called EOS®, to be used in specific patient cases. The system produces long length images of the spine and lower extremities with significantly less radiation than is normally required using other imaging tools. There is also the additional capability of creating 3D images of the bony skeleton that can provide our surgeons a more complete review of a patient’s anatomy for treatment planning. Read more.

We have athletic trainers on our team to evaluate and educate on diagnoses and treatment, including exercises. Unlike most health care professionals, the background of an athletic trainer includes sport-specific and position-specific training and care experience. This allows the provider to make clinical diagnoses and care recommendations, and the athletic trainer is able to help the family understand what this means for the athlete in their sport.
