Athletic physicals available at CRMC's clinics

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Cherokee Regional Clinic, on the campus of Cherokee Regional Medical Center, will be offering athletic physicals to area students entering the 8th through 12th grades. The cost for each athletic physical will be $25 with payment due at the time of the physical. If you believe your insurance covers yearly exams, please verify this with your insurance company and mention it when you schedule your appointment.

Athletic physicals at the Cherokee location will be offered during the morning hours on the following dates: June 22, 24, 30; July 13, 22, 28 and Aug. 10, 11, 12.

Please schedule your physicals early as these time slots typically fill quickly. To schedule an athletic physical at the Cherokee Clinic please call (712) 225-6265.

Athletic physicals at a cost of $25 will also be offered by appointment at the Cherokee Regional Clinic locations in Holstein and Marcus throughout the months of June, July and August. Please call one of the following CRC locations to set up an appointment: Cherokee Regional Clinic in Holstein -- (712) 368-4730 and Cherokee Regional Clinic in Marcus -- (712) 376-4600.

All students who plan to participate in extracurricular activities must submit a physical and insurance waiver before they will be allowed to practice. These physicals should be considered screening physicals and not complete examinations. Students entering the seventh grade are encouraged to schedule a complete physical prior to competing in Jr. High extracurricular activities. Contact any of the three CRC locations to schedule a comprehensive examination.

Remember to contact your school for the appropriate physical forms and make sure that the parent/guardian sections are completed prior to the appointment. A parent/guardian is also encouraged to accompany their student to the physicals in case they would require additional tests, immunizations, etc. Students must have a permission slip signed by their parent or guardian prior to receiving a physical.
