Daviess Community Hospital partners with Pike Central School Corporation

(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.

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.

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.”
