ProHealth Care teams with Carroll University to provide sports medicine services

ProHealth Care has entered into an agreement with Carroll University to provide sports medicine services to student athletes, faculty, coaches and staff of the university’s recreational and organized sports.

ProHealth sports medicine physicians, physical therapists and athletic trainers will be responsible for helping Carroll athletes and others prevent sports injuries. They also will provide initial treatment for athletic injuries and comprehensive rehabilitation and reconditioning services for injured athletes.

“Providing these services to Carroll University is a natural extension of our sports medicine program,” said Julie Jackson, ProHealth Care’s vice president of operations. “Our team is highly trained in multi-level care that includes prevention, diagnosis, emergency care and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.”

ProHealth is expected to serve more than 550 student athletes, faculty and staff members, including people involved in 22 sponsored NCAA Division III teams, said Joe Baker, director of intercollegiate athletics at Carroll University.

“The ProHealth services will help us continue to compete at the highest level possible and ensure that our athletes remain at the top of their game,” Baker said.

ProHealth provides sports medicine services to St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy in Delafield and the following high schools: Arrowhead in Hartland, Catholic Memorial in Waukesha, Kettle Moraine in Wales, Mukwonago, New Berlin Eisenhower, New Berlin West, Oconomowoc, Waukesha North, Waukesha South and Waukesha West.
