Sep 9, 2016Clinic on Campus
Later this month, Christian Brothers High School in Memphis, Tenn., will open a sports medicine facility that they designed in collaboration with Campbell Clinic. According to the Memphis Business Journal, the facility, at about 1,400 square feet, is one of the largest in its state, and will include features such as a NormaTec system for dynamic recovery, cryotherapy pools, electrotherapy systems, and areas for physical therapy and rehabilitation comparable to in-patient orthopedic clinics.
“Our goal was to create a medically directed facility that would empower our athletes to not only perform at the highest level but also to recover from injuries more rapidly than ever before,” Mike Kelly, athletic director for CBHS, said. “Our sports medicine program will now be located in an area that will help us balance preventive therapies with world-class rehabilitation for injured athletes.”
The clinic is part of the $10 million Brothers Development Center, a 50,000 square foot building that will be the center for the campus.
“The work between our clinic’s staff and CBHS to design this unique sports medicine program has been a true partnership,” Fred Azar, chief of staff at Campbell Clinic and team physician for CBHS, said. “Having a best-in-class facility for training and rehabilitation will propel the Brothers’ sports program to new heights, and we were honored to be a part of that process.”
