From pulled muscles to broken bones, athletic injuries can be difficult – especially for high school players who may not have experience caring for injuries. Established in 2009, St. Dominic’s Sports Medicine program is a unique and valuable community program which provides Certified Athletic Trainers (ATCs) to local high schools at no cost to the schools. The program is designed to create a safe, yet competitive environment for athletes while upholding St. Dominic Hospital’s Christian mission of healing and emphasis on communication, community and service.
