Wimbledon Health Partners, the leading on-site diagnostic testing organization which provides vascular, electrocardiogram (EKG), echocardiogram, and NCV testing, announced their collegiate division, Wimbledon U, continues to not just gain momentum but has been successfully identifying previously undiagnosed cardiovascular abnormalities one program at a time.

“Wimbledon U welcomes the eight new Colleges and High Schools that joined our program in July. The Wimbledon U program continues to see incredible growth, far exceeding our forecasted projections. This was made possible due to strong leadership, collegiate partnerships, and enhanced diagnostic offerings,” states Meredith Millman, Wimbledon U & Wimbledon Athletics Program Director at Wimbledon Health Partners.

Wimbledon U closed a notable month of success in July 2015 and recently announced that it achieved a 60% month-over-month increase in new colleges and high school acquisition. This led to a 48% increase in testing growth.

The company continues its growth trajectory in becoming the fastest growing provider of on-site diagnostic testing within athletics. Contributing to the success of the organization is the number of occult cardiac abnormalities that have been identified as a result of the steps taken by the Colleges and High Schools. The severity and impact of the discovered abnormalities has varied from individual to individual, but even in cases where the anomalies are not immediately life-threatening, there have always been significant implications for the young athletes.

As indicated by Bradley Artel, MD, FACC, Chief Medical Officer of Wimbledon Health Partners, “Our initial mission was to save lives on the playing fields of our high schools and colleges, but in doing so, we are also finding abnormalities that while not imminently dangerous, do have consequences for the students later in life, such as the eventual need for surgical correction. Knowing this sooner rather than later can result in earlier treatment and can markedly change the course of what would otherwise have been.”

Wimbledon Athletics and Wimbledon U team up with high schools, colleges, universities, amateur sports associations, and any other clubs nationwide that want to save athlete’s lives!
