Memorial Hermann teams up with Spring Branch ISD
Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center has joined forces with the Spring Branch Independent School District to ensure student athletes stay healthy both on and off the playing field.
According to a press release, the medical center will provide education, training and medical services that will support student athletes, their coaches and families. These services include free or low-cost sports physicals for qualifying middle and high school students, training and educational opportunities on topics such as injury prevention and first aid, access to injury clinics, pre- and post-concussion ImPACT testing for high school athletes, direct access to emergency center services when a student athlete is injured at school or during a sporting event and scholarships for high school seniors pursuing careers as athletic trainers.
"Our two organizations have collaborated on dozens of community and school-based programs over the past 20 years," said Keith Alexander, CEO of Memorial Hermann Memorial City, in the release. "This is an extension of our relationship and we look forward to supporting SBISD athletics by providing high-quality health care in a variety of settings."
Spring Branch ISD also expressed their gratitude.
"SBISD has been so fortunate to have Memorial Hermann Memorial City as a longtime educational partner," said Paige Hershey, executive athletic director for the school district, in the release. "Now the medical center's generous support of our athletic programs will enable us to take our sports programs to the next level. We're grateful that our students will benefit from Memorial Hermann Memorial City's vast experience and expertise in orthopedics and sports medicine and its commitment to keeping our student athletes as safe and as healthy as possible."
