Madison Health, formerly Madison County Hospital, has partnered with Nationwide Children's to provide pediatric sports medicine care in and around Madison County. The collaboration offers area student-athletes improved access to specialized sports medicine care and enables patients requiring care the ability to receive it in the community whenever possible. Both hospital systems are working closely to coordinate resources in order to provide cost-effective care to all patients and to ensure an appropriate level of sports medicine care and improved transitions of care when necessary. Athletic trainers, physicians, therapists and teachers will also have more opportunities to receive specialized education.
