Hendricks Regional Health and the Avon Community School Corporation announced a new comprehensive health care partnership that includes sports medicine coverage.
Under the terms of a recent agreement, HRH has become the exclusive health care provider of sports medicine services and employee health initiatives for the school corporation.
For the past few years, HRH has provided Avon schools with an employee health clinic, providing on-site medical care and pharmacy services for school employees, their spouses and dependents. The hospital is expanding that relationship to include care for occupational medicine, student athletes, and support for school nurses.
Beginning with this school year, HRH will provide athletic trainers for on-site care for high school and middle school athletic teams and the Avon High School marching band. The new agreement includes team physician coverage for all varsity football games. The hospital will also provide athletic physicals, baseline IMPACT concussion testing for high school athletes, CPR and AED instruction for high school coaches, and more.
As the exclusive healthcare partner for ACSC, HRH will continue to provide school employees with an on-site employee wellness clinic offering preventive health services and illness care and healthy lifestyle support by certified wellness coaches. In addition, each school nurse will have access to telephone consultations during school hours with a HRH primary care physician.
As part of the partnership agreement, Avon High School has renamed its football facility Hendricks Regional Health Stadium.
“Hendricks Regional Health has a deep sense of commitment to our community and we are truly excited to expand this relationship with Avon Community School Corporation,” HRH president and CEO Kevin Speer said in a press release. “The alliance enables Hendricks Regional Health to provide Avon Community School Corporation with health and wellness services, athletic training, students and staff education, as well as continued onsite clinic services. These efforts are backed by quality care offered at lower costs than other hospitals.”
Avon Superintendent Maggie Hoernemann added, “This expanded partnership with Hendricks Regional Health dramatically enhances services for students and staff. We are thrilled to be associated with an organization long known for its commitment to our community and to education.”
HRH has served the area's medical needs since 1962. Licensed by the Indiana State Department of Health and accredited by the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program, HRH staffs a full complement of physicians in a variety of specialties at locations in Danville, Avon, Plainfield, Brownsburg, Lizton, and Bainbridge.
