From staff and wire reports - September 13, 2013

St. Charles Parish Hospital recently held its annual pre-Sports Physicals for all St. Charles Parish Middle Schools.

This event is organized annually by the hospital at the request of the middle schools in order to provide parents a convenient way to get physicals for their children in time for the upcoming school athletic year.

Coaches from several of the middle schools were present to meet the parents and children as well as answer any questions that they may have had.

Physicals were provided over the course of one day and saw nearly 250 students in attendance.

All students received a medical history screening, a thorough orthopedic screening, and a comprehensive screening by physicians and staff. Doctors, nurses and physical therapists were all on hand to make sure the physicals meet all requirements set by the state for junior high athletes.

St. Charles Parish Hospital officals thanked all of their employees who participated in the pre-sports physicals. Hospital administrators said everyone worked efficiently to make the event a great success.

St. Charles Parish Hospital officals officials expressed their appreciation to all of the parents and students who attended the pre-sports physicals as well as all of the coaches who were there to assist.
