Cincinnati, OH – Beginning immediately, Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, in collaboration with the TriHealth Network will provide comprehensive sports medicine services to athletes at Ursuline Academy of Cincinnati. Continuing its tradition of providing outstanding, comprehensive orthopaedic services for patients, Beacon doctors and athletic trainers will work onsite at Ursuline and on the sidelines during sporting events to provide thorough sports medical care.
Dr. Peter Cha, president of Beacon Orthopaedics, will serve as Ursuline’s medical director and team physician, overseeing the Lions’ sports medicine department. “Beacon has been privileged to be the official sports medicine providers to more than 30 local high school, club, college and professional teams,” said Dr. Cha. “And now, we thrilled to be bringing that same expert care to the Ursuline community.”
Becky White, M.Ed, AT will be returning as athletic trainer for the school, working closely with Dr. Cha and the specialists at Beacon and TriHealth to ensure the absolute best care. White will continue to work full-time at the school, and is available for all students, student athletes, school personnel. The Ursuline community already trusts her knowledge, judgement and care, given the rapport she has cultivated over her time there. “Ursuline is excited about this new partnership with Beacon Orthopaedics and Dr. Cha,” said Colleen Dehring, Ursuline Academy athletic director. “We are confident that the Beacon team will provide our athletes the best medical care, keeping everyone safe and healthy.”
Ursuline has been a long-time participant in the Bioskills Cadaver Lab Program and will continue to do so, under this new partnership. Beacon Orthopaedics and TriHealth will work with the Ursuline administration to provide these and other educational opportunities for the Ursuline students, creating shadowing, guest lectures, and internship opportunities for students interested in pursuing medical careers.
