To win the game you must have a good offensive strategy, but also a good defense. Our specialists teach proper strength building, flexibility, conditioning and endurance training techniques to help minimize the risk of injury.

Seeing stars requires star medical care. Concussions are serious and returning to the field before complete recovery can put athletes at risk for permanent brain injury. HCA Midwest Health offers a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary program to aid in recovery and a safe return to play. We also provide ImPACT™ concussion baseline testing. This is the test used on professional athletes to evaluate recovery after a concussion.

Concussion Management

Sports can be fun and have many social, emotional and physical health benefits. But they can also be dangerous. We are committed to the health and safety of the athletes in our community. Pre-participation physicals are an essential part of this commitment. They include a physical exam and review of an athlete’s medical history to determine if it is safe for them to partake in the activity of their choice.

With the goal of getting back in the game as safely and quickly as possible, our sports injury rehabilitation program concentrates on restoring strength, movement and endurance, managing pain and preventing permanent damage and reoccurring issues. Because we’d rather see you in the game than in our hospitals.

Orthopedic Rehabilitation

You may have already seen our athletic trainers at a soccer match, football or hockey game. We partner with local schools, leagues and professional teams to provide athletic training services to help keep our athletes of all ages on the field. Our athletic trainers are all certified to assess and triage minor sports injuries that occur during play. They also work with our specialists to develop a safe return to play plan tailored for each athlete.

Our Sports Partnerships

We hope that you’ll never need orthopedic surgery. But sometimes it is necessary to restore function or when other treatments fail to provide relief. In addition to our local hospitals, HCA Midwest Health has six ambulatory surgery centers offering orthopedic surgery services:
