Loyola University Maryland announced a long-term partnership with LifeBridge Health, where the health system will serve as the Official Healthcare Provider of the Greyhounds.
Under the partnership, which was secured by Van Wagner, the multimedia rights holder for the Greyhounds, LifeBridge Health will oversee care for Loyola’s 18 NCAA Division I sports teams.
LifeBridge Health and Loyola are working together to address the changing needs of student-athletes during the COVID-19 pandemic, including supporting the Greyhounds as Loyola student-athletes return to workouts and competition.
Through the partnership, LifeBridge Health will provide preseason physicals, onsite sports medicine clinics, access to orthopedic surgeons with sports medicine expertise, and the services of leading experts in concussion management. LifeBridge Health’s network will be able to offer expanded comprehensive care and personalized services based entirely around the needs of Loyola’s 400-plus student-athletes. LifeBridge Health also offers comprehensive rehabilitation services, including a Gait Lab at Sinai Hospital that uses state-of-the-art technology to analyze skeletal alignment and muscle function allowing for customized rehabilitation and training plans.
This partnership will advance the health of student-athletes through sports medicine, primary care and physical therapy while also enabling avenues to promote nutrition, mental health and the overall well-being of the Greyhounds.
Additionally, the agreement includes marketing opportunities that allow for LifeBridge Health to be featured on signage at all Greyhounds athletics facilities, in extensive marketing opportunities and across Loyola Athletics’ many digital platforms.
