CEO Paul Harvey and Sports Medicine Director Kyle Lemarr appeared on KSST’s Good Morning Show to introduce the community to CHRISTUS’ new sports medicine program.
The Sports Medicine Program is growing into this area, with full coverage of Sulphur Springs High School and a locally-based program coordinator, Kyle Lemarr. What this means is that CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Sulphur Springs physicians and providers are incredibly available/accessible to school athletes in the area. CHRISTUS has trainers on sidelines for football games and all sports, and we also have CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Sulphur Springs Associate on staff as the assistant athletic trainer at the high school offering expertise and assistance to students and the SSISD. Altogether, this growth means that we are able to keep more services, athletes and patients at home in Sulphur Springs.
Through the Sports Medicine Program, the CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital Sulphur Springs Emergency Department will host a FREE Sports injury clinic every Saturday, from 9:00-11:00 a.m. ER physicians will evaluate all musculoskeletal injuries and can utilize same-day MRI scans for all athletes from middle school to college (excluding concussion).
