KIMS Hospital and Maidstone United announce Medical PartnershipBlog Health News 9th October 2017 Enquiries & appointments
Maidstone United and KIMS Hospital have announced a medical partnership that will see KIMS Hospital provide medical services, including diagnostic scans and injury treatments, to the club’s professional players.
As well as scans and treatments for injured players, the hospital will provide screening services such as ECGs and Echocardiograms in the hospital’s Cardiology department. The screening aims to detect and prevent any underlying health issues and maintain players’ fitness.
KIMS Hospital CEO, Simon James comments, “Supporting the local community sits at the heart of KIMS Hospital’s ethos. We are therefore delighted to be working with Maidstone United to help keep their team fit and healthy. By providing fast access to our services and facilities, we’ll support the team in their success throughout this season and beyond”.
The hospital is just a 10-minute drive from Maidstone’s ground, The Gallagher Stadium. This means that the club is able to get access to healthcare much quicker than they previously could when sending players further afield.
Maidstone United’s Sports & Rehab Physiotherapist, Paul Smith says, “We are really pleased to be working with KIMS Hospital. The partnership has already been valuable this season, with a number of our players attending the hospital. I’ve been very impressed so far with the efficiency of the service and the speed of access to scan and test results has been fantastic.”
