Promoting Health & Wellness for Student Athletes

Mercy Health is committed to keeping student athletes in the game through pre-participation physical examinations (PPE), also known as Sports Physicals.

Required by all schools in Kentucky and Ohio and by most club athletics before the start of the season, Sports Physicals help determine if it’s safe for student athletes to participate in sports. The exams consist of two parts – medical history and physical exam – to evaluate your student’s health and physical condition for their sport. Even if your team doesn’t require a sports physical, we recommend getting one before starting any sport.

Mercy Health is proud to partner with our affiliated High Schools and Middle Schools to provide Sports Physicals to athletes who attend those schools.
