Building a partnership

We are working together with local school corporations to provide exceptional care for their student-athletes and build better, healthier sports teams. Our providers view their role with student-athletes as a partnership, and each participant must do their part to make it successful.

Our athletic trainers and physicians will:

  • Prepare each player prior to practice or game
  • Evaluate, treat, and rehabilitate athletes in the event of an injury
  • Develop plans to improve the athlete’s endurance level
  • Demonstrate the proper care of an injury
  • Communicate with coaches and parents regarding an athlete’s injury, at-home care, follow-up care, and when the athlete may return to physical activity

Our student-athletes will:

  • Need to support and encourage teammates when injured
  • Listen to coaches, athletic trainers, physicians, and parents when injured
  • Need to be aware of and follow restrictions while recovering from an injury
  • Need to maintain good eating habits and stay hydrated

We will ensure that athletes are able to safely compete at their competitive best! Our hospital roots for your home team because we’re Building Better Health, together.
