The Damien High School Sports Medicine Program has worked with the Pomona Valley Hospital Sports Medicine Center for over 12 years to provide the best care possible for Spartan athletes. One of their biggest contributions to the Sports Medicine program is the Annual Sports Physical Fundraiser that occurs in May. The money raised is donated directly back to the Sports Medicine Program to purchase the supplies and equipment necessary to care for student-athletes. With the help of Pomona Valley Hospital, the Sports Medicine program raised $5,250 this year.
In addition to the annual fundraiser, the Sports Medicine Center provides free injury screenings for Spartan student-athletes, including injury diagnosis, referrals as needed and x-rays. The clinic is held every Monday and Thursday from 5-7PM in the Physical Therapy Department. Appointments are required and can be made by calling (909) 865-9810.
Pomona Valley has also provided Damien High School with a team physician, who works closely with the Sports Medicine staff. Dr. Erik Olsen has supported the sports medicine program for the last 12 years by attending football games and helping the staff in providing care for the student-athletes.
Thank you to Pomona Valley Hospital for their continued support of and donations of over $31,000 to the Sports Medicine Program.
