Free Sports Physical Dates Set for Murray, Calloway, Eastwood Students

murray calloway hosp2MURRAY, Ky. (4/19/14) – Murray-Calloway County Hospital will host its annual free sports physicals to local middle and high school athletes Saturday, June 21 and Saturday, July 12, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The physicals will be held in the Endoscopy Department (former Outpatient Services) at the west entrance of MCCH. Volunteer physicians and nurses will perform the physicals.

To receive a free physical:

  • The student must be seventh grade or above.

  • Enrolled in the Murray Independent School District, Calloway County School District or Eastwood Christian Academy.

  • The student also must have a completed medical history form signed by a parent or guardian.

No appointment is necessary.

In 2013, the two-day free physical program saw more than 500 local athletes cleared to play sports. The average physical costs a family $100, but Murray-Calloway County Hospital coordinated a team of 11 volunteer physicians and 37 other volunteers to give their time and provide the exams free of charge. The estimated savings to local families was more than $50,000.

The free physicals are part of the hospital’s commitment to support local school systems, which also includes providing salaries for school nurses and athletic trainers. MCCH also has donated AED unites to both schools, offers free membership at the Center for Health and Wellness to student athletes and provides CPR training for coaches.

For more information about the program, contact Melissa Ross, Health Promotions Coordinator, at (270) 762-1832.
