Grace College & Seminary is expanding its partnership with Lutheran Health Network Kosciusko Community Hospital. The college says as part of the 10-year agreement, KCH will provide ongoing support to Grace in areas including health education, wellness, academics and athletic programs.
The college says athletic training through the KCH Regional Rehabilitation Center will continue to be offered to student athletes and sports medicine services will be enhanced as part of the deal. Some of those services include injury prevention training, on-site training for coaches on proper technique and strength conditioning.
"The purpose of this commitment is to improve the health and wellness of community members whom we serve locally through Kosciusko Community Hospital, MedStat Urgent Care and Occupational Health, our affiliated medical staff and KCH Regional Rehabilitation Center," said Kirk Ray, chief executive officer of KCH. "The agreement demonstrates a commitment from both entities to have a unified long-term vision for improving the health of Grace College & Seminary students, faculty and staff."
KCH will also provide a student health nurse to Grace College as a result of the agreement.
