Every middle and high school athlete must pass a physical before they are allowed to practice or play.
Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital and medical staff offers an easy opportunity to get those physicals.
Athletes and their parents are invited to attend the annual sports physical program at Marcus Daly Rehabilitation Center from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 1, or Wednesday, Aug. 7, or to the Bitterroot Physicians Clinic South from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 5.
“By hosting the sports physical clinics in Hamilton and Darby, we hope that the added convenience helps to increase the number of students participating, resulting in the school districts receiving more in donations,” said Amy James-Linton, marketing and communications director for Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital.
Over the past 11 years, the sports physical program sponsored by Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital and Medical Providers raised a total of $97,500 for school athletic programs across the valley.
The cost is $25 per student, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated back to the students’ school athletic program. Cash or check only, payment is due at the time of visit; no refunds. For the event on the hospital campus, please enter the Marcus Daly Rehabilitation Center through the main entrance, located on the south west end of Westwood Drive. For the south valley outreach location, enter through the medical clinics front door.
All participants must have a sports physical form. They are available at medical clinics or through a coach; or online at www.mdmh.org/events. Parents must fill out and sign the sports physical form and accompany their child at the examination. The physical includes height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, vision, evaluations for posture, joints, strength, flexibility, heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose and throat.
Marcus Daly Medical Staff members donate their time to make this program possible.
