Community High School District 155 and Mercyhealth Announce Athletic Training Partnership

What's new at Mercyhealth | Tuesday, May 17, 2022

Community High School District 155 and Mercyhealth are pleased to announce that beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, Mercyhealth will be providing athletic training services to the district’s high schools. The three-year contract provides high-quality care to the student athletes with services that include sports physicals, first aid and CPR classes for coaches, injury prevention screens, increased access to care at Mercyhealth facilities, and physician coverage at home football games.

“We are excited to partner with Mercyhealth for athletic training services and educational opportunities for our students,” said Steve Olson, Community High School District 155’s Superintendent. “This partnership will enhance student well-being and allow students to explore health care careers, which aligns with our new district career experiences initiative.”

Mercyhealth leaders also expressed their excitement to serve the Crystal Lake community. “We are thrilled to be partnering with School District 155 and look forward to supporting the students and staff,” said Jeni Hallatt, Mercyhealth vice president. “Additionally, we are looking forward to bringing our high-level service model to the Crystal Lake community as we have done in other communities for more than 30 years.”

Mercyhealth currently provides athletic training services to nine high schools and three colleges throughout southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. This expansion of athletic training services into Crystal Lake will further be enhanced when Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center–Crystal Lake opens in early 2023. This new facility will be home to Crystal Lake’s first emergency department, private hospital inpatient and intensive care suites, surgery suites, lab and X-ray, as well as primary and specialty care physician offices.
