It seems that every week there is another death reported in the news, and with school athletic departments able to provide this testing, it gives them peace of mind that these tragedies won’t happen under their care.

Wimbledon Health Partners, the industry leader in on-site diagnostic testing for athletic programs and physicians, is gearing up for the biggest month of cardiovascular testing to date. The company reports that 24 colleges and universities across 17 states are currently scheduled to test student athletes through Wimbledon Athletics during the month of August. September is also shaping up to be a high-volume month of testing.

“Word is spreading on the need to ensure the safety of young athletes,” says Misty Burke-Richman, Chief Sales Officer at Wimbledon Health Partners. “More and more athletic trainers and athletic directors are signing up with us to test their student athletes for cardiovascular conditions before they participate in sports. It seems that every week there is another death reported in the news, and with school athletic departments able to provide this testing, it gives them peace of mind that these tragedies won’t happen under their care.”

Burke-Richman continues, “Schools are also using our testing program as a recruiting tool. They are able to say their school is doing everything it can to protect student athletes, and this can make the difference in which school a student ultimately chooses, or a parent chooses for their child.”

Wimbledon Health Partners’ comprehensive testing program includes EKGs and echocardiograms to detect cardiac abnormalities that cause sudden cardiac arrest and vascular ultrasound to identify blood flow abnormalities for which athletes are prone.
