Partnerships

Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine values local athletes and is here to educate athletes and sports lovers on injury prevention as well as provide quality orthopedic care when necessary. Beacon is proud to partner with over 30 local high schools and college athletic programs as well as more than 25 recreational programs, 6 professional sports teams, and over 15 professional sports organizations, including the Christ Hospital Health System. Our close relationship with Christ enables us to combine our resources and provide care to thousands of high school, college, semi-professional and professional athletes in the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton area.

Through our hands-on partnerships, athletes receive the highest quality care from our Certified Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists, and Sports Medicine Physicians. Athletic trainers are present on the sidelines of games and competitions to provide care when necessary. Students have access to resources such as the Beacon Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation, located at our Summit Woods location. Here, we host cadaveric labs and educational seminars. This allows students to gain hands-on experience in the medical world, while working with some of the most cutting-edge technology. Our partners are given priority access to our imaging services and physical therapy. And, if needed, they are guaranteed an appointment with one of our physicians within 48 hours or less.

    Collegiate Athletic Partnerships

     

    *Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine partners with The Christ Hospital Health Network to provide comprehensive care to the Greater Cincinnati area.  Our partnership allows us to provide the best possible care to our college, and high school athletes as well as weekend warriors.  Our combined outreach program serves thousands of college and high school athletes in our local communities.

    In addition to first class care, Beacon and Christ are committed to providing educational programs to high school students, college students, and members of the community.  Through the Beacon Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation, located at our Summit Woods location, we are able to host cadaveric labs and educational seminars.  This allows students to gain hands on experience in the medical world, while working with some of the most cutting edge technology.

    The athletes we have partnered to serve receive first class care with daily coverage of practices and games from Certified Athletic Trainers.  Athletic Trainers provide prevention, management, and rehabilitative services to our athletes, as well as sideline care when necessary.  Each Athletic Trainer works under the guidance of the team’s Medical Director, and should it be needed, an appointment with a fellowship trained Sports Medicine Physician is made available immediately or within 24 hours, depending on the severity of the injury.  Our athletes also receive priority access to physical therapy and imaging services through our elite partnership.
