St.Vincent Clay Hospital maintains a strong partnership with Northview High School. As part of that partnership, the hospital pays for a full-time athletic trainer for the school.
The athletic trainer assists athletes in achieving their optimum sports performance by:
The trainer serves as the liaison between players, coaches, physicians and family and is on-call at all of the sports programs. If more than one player is hurt at the same time, the trainer will prioritize the severity of injury. This effort is just one way the hospital exhibits its dedication to making sure that children are safe while they play sports.
