Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) provided 234 sport physicals to athletes from Miami Trace and Washington City Schools this year.
With the addition of seventh and eighth grade athletes, as well as high school athletes from both local schools, there was an increase of 100 more athletes compared to 2015.
“We have been thrilled with the great relationship the City Schools have with FCMH. They have provided a remarkable service to our student-athletes on a daily basis. We are very grateful for this partnership. FCMH provides outstanding care for our athletes with our trainer Josh Wiemels and team doctor Mark Conroy. The service of providing free physicals and partnering with us to take care of our student-athletes is greatly appreciated. I want to thank all the providers who helped out and planned the free physicals. I know our parents really appreciate the services and care offered to us by FCMH. We look forward to many years of this continued partnership with FCMH,” said Jon Creamer, athletic director of Washington City Schools.
“The partnership between Miami Trace Local Schools and Fayette County Memorial Hospital continues to grow each year. Miami Trace would like to thank the providers and volunteers for offering our student-athletes free physicals. This program along with many others provided by FCMH help to ensure the well-being of our athletes,” said Aaron Hammond, Miami Trace athletic director.
FCMH would not be able to provide this community service without the help of volunteers. Many thanks to all 43 volunteers including; 29 FCMH employees, two high school athletic directors, three community volunteers, and nine providers from FCMH, OSU, and ERx.
