(Washington, IN) – Pike Central School Corporation has partnered
with Daviess Community Hospital to be the exclusive provider of athletic
training services for their 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 Pike Central
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 Pike Central,” says Scott Sell, DCH Director
of Athletic Training. “The school’s commitment to ensuring
the health and safety of its student athletes is second to none. We’re
honored that the Pike Central athletic programs trust us to help keep
their athletes healthy and safe; it’s something we’ll never
take for granted.”
