A new partnership will kick off Monday between Indianapolis-based Methodist Sports Medicine and the Carmel Police Department. The department will join the First Line Tactical Athlete Program, which will provide access to a dedicated athletic trainer on-site to manage both work-related and non-work-related orthopedic needs.
The First Line Tactical Athlete Program includes screenings, patient education, individualized preventative programming, thorough on-site evaluation, imaging, rehabilitation services and referrals to Methodist Sports Medicine’s network of physicians.
The company has six locations in Indiana, including offices in Avon, Bloomington, Carmel, Grand Park, Greenwood and Tipton.
“We are proud to partner with Methodist Sports Medicine and look forward to utilizing their services for all of our medical needs,” said Carmel Police Chief Jim Barlow. “By having an on-site athletic trainer in our department and access to their other services, our police officers will have the best orthopedic care, so that they won’t have to walk through their healthcare needs alone.”
