Weisman Children's Rehabilitation Hospital

Medford Strikers Soccer Club agrees to sponsorship with Weisman Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital

Medford Strikers are pleased to announce Weisman Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital as their Premier Sponsor. “Over the past 6 months we’ve been communicating with Weisman Children’s, touring their facilities and getting to know how they work and their philosophy on athlete care. They operate from the same foundation as our club; always working to provide the best care possible, interested in the long term outcome of their patients,” said Medford Strikers President, Patrick Progar.

Weisman Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital is one of only two rehabilitation hospitals in New Jersey focused solely on the needs of infants, children and teens. With 5 outpatient centers servicing Southern New Jersey, Weisman Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital and their new sports medicine program, Weisman Sport, delivers a level of individualized attention that is unsurpassed in the region. Weisman Sport’s mission is to ensure that our young athletes receive the proper treatment and ongoing care they need to return to the field and our community.

Under the agreement, among other services, Weisman Children’s will facilitate baseline impact testing for all players not previously tested. They will provide therapy to the Club’s players for purposes of assisting players to return to play, communicate with players’ referring physicians regarding therapy evaluation results and rehabilitation progress, and provide access to the Hospital’s Physiatrist for services if requested. Additionally, with consent from players’ families, the Hospital will work closely with Medford’s coaches to ensure all our players are returning from injury fully cleared and ready to play. The Club will also have priority access to therapy services as well as appoint a specific individual to serve as the contact for the Club’s coaches and the players’ families.

The new relationship between the Club and Weisman Childrens’ will ensure that Medford Strikers players and families have access to outstanding medical care and rehabilitation services through 2017.
