St. Charles Parish Hospital holds annual pre-sports physicals
The pre-sports physicals are an annually organized event by St. Charles Parish Hospital, at the request of the middle schools, in order to provide parents with a convenient way to get physicals for their children for the upcoming school year. Students received a thorough screening which included a musculoskeletal assessment, vision screening, height and weight, vital signs, review of medical history and physical assessment by a physician.
Coaches from each school were present to meet with parents and students and answer any questions they may have.
“I was truly expecting to be here for hours, but everything was so well organized that we moved from station to station very quickly. Everyone at the hospital was so friendly and I was very impressed,” Barry Webre, who brought his son to receive a physical, said.
Hospital officials said the event is an opportunity to provide a wonderful service to the community of St. Charles Parish and it would not be possible to do so without the efforts of St. Charles Parish Hospital’s dedicated staff.
When asked about the pre-sports physicals, Marcie Elliott, RN, said, “Everyone really enjoys this experience. I love to help these students and the parents are all so appreciative. It makes you feel good about providing this service for the community.”
Hospital officials also thanked the St. Charles Parish Public School System for their continued partnership.
