Vincennes University has partnered with Daviess Community Hospital to be
the exclusive provider of athletic training services for their Trailblazer
student athletes and sports teams.
Under the agreement, an athletic trainer from Daviess Community Hospital’s
CORE Center will be onsite daily to provide medical care to Trailblazer
athletes and teams. This arrangement enables student-athletes to have
maximum interaction with the athletic trainer whenever an injury or other
medical concern arises.
Athletic trainers are highly qualified, multi-skilled healthcare professionals
who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency
care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation
for injuries and medical conditions. Working under the direction of a
physician as prescribed by state licensure statutes, they are able to
successfully take an athlete from point of injury through their return
to play process.
“Daviess Community Hospital is proud to provide unparalleled athletic
training services to Vincennes University,” says Scott Sell, DCH
Director of Athletic Training. “The University’s commitment
to ensuring the health and safety of its student athletes is second to
none. We’re honored that VU and its Trailblazer athletic programs
trust us to help keep their athletes healthy and safe; it’s something
we’ll never take for granted.”
The agreement takes effect immediately.
