Riverview Health is pleased to announce that it will serve as the exclusive sports medicine provider for Sheridan Community Schools, starting April 1, 2016.
“We’re very excited to partner with Riverview Health for our athletic training program,” said Dr. Dave Mundy, superintendent of Sheridan Community Schools. “This partnership will allow us to provide our students with superior sports medicine services while forging a tighter bond with a healthcare leader in our community.”
As part of the agreement, Riverview Health will provide onsite certified athletic trainers and a weekly injury clinic for students participating in school sports.
