(PRWEB) June 10, 2016 -- Wimbledon Health Partners, the industry leader in on-site diagnostic testing for athletic and physician programs, announces it will implement concussion testing in Q3 of this year to supplement the company’s testing protocol for middle/high school and college athletes.
Athletic programs nationwide have begun implementing concussion procedures to ensure the health and safety of their student athletes amidst the growing concern over the long-term effects of concussions. As well, a growing number of lawsuits have been filed against the NCAA and various colleges and conferences, highlighting the effects of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative disease commonly found in the brains of athletes at risk for concussions. Wimbledon Health Partners will help schools meet new guidelines by offering concussion testing as part of the company’s repertoire of diagnostic tests.
“With brain trauma cases on the rise in schools across the country, it is evident that the need for concussion testing exists,” states Dr. Russell Packard, a neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Physicians and the American Academy of Neurology. “Wimbledon Health Partners is highly regarded in the diagnostic testing space, and adding concussion testing to their process makes sense.”
Wimbledon Health Partners is set to offer concussion testing to schools beginning August 1, 2016.
“Because we already have the business model in place to provide on-site diagnostic testing, it is the logical next step for Wimbledon Health Partners to enter the concussion business,” says Mitchell Rubin, CEO of Wimbledon Health Partners. “We are more than prepared to meet the needs of our customers. Concussion testing is something that schools have been asking for, and we are listening.”
Schools interested in getting a jump start on scheduling concussion testing may call Wimbledon Health Partners at (855) 200-8262 to sign up.
