Skaggs Regional Medical Center provided more than 370 athletic physicals to Branson Middle School and Branson High School athletes Monday, May 21. “This type of program is a great way for Skaggs to give back to its community,” explains Lisa Marshall, Skaggs Wellness Coordinator. “By teaming up with the Branson coaches and offering scheduled appointments for those who pre-register, foot traffic flowed better than in years past and wait times were greatly decreased.”
Skaggs has offered this special screening event for more than 20 years. “We appreciate the efforts and outcomes provided by the Skaggs staff,” says Tony Berry, Branson Schools Athletic Director. “And the coaches are grateful that their athletes are screened and ready to go when it’s time to begin practice. We extend thanks to all the staff who donated their time to this event.”
Those who volunteered to work the event included Branson coaches, Skaggs staff and the following Branson/Tri-Lakes area providers: Dr. Brian Clonts; Dr. Sheny Alex; Dr. Mark Schultz; Dr. Rick Blubaugh; Dr. William Zeller; Dr. Dwight Zable; Marie Sade, FNP; Dr. Travis Brawner; Dr. Click Reed; Dr. Holly Wherry; Dr. Habib Munshi; Elton Youngblood, PA; Sheila Wyman, FNP; Dr. Charles Woodall; and Dr. Ray Woodmansee.
“Skaggs looks forward to working with Branson Schools again next year,” says Marshall. “I believe we have a winning combination when it comes to providing a convenient and well-organized event, benefiting Branson student athletes and their parents.”
