WESTFIELD - The chief executive officer of Methodist Sports Medicine says the opening of a new clinic at the Grand Park Events Center in Westfield is the culmination of two years of work. The clinic, which was announced in February when Methodist Sports Medicine was named the official sports medicine provider for the campus, includes athletic trainers, physical therapists and an orthopedic doctor.

In an interview with Inside INdiana Business, Marty Rosenberg said Methodist Sports Medicine wants to make Grand Park the safest place for athletes to come for recreational competitive sports. "Our goal and our mission is to take care of people and we believe that this will be the safest place for people to play."

Rosenberg says the organization has invested about $500,000 into the 2,500-square-foot clinic and adds that investment will grow as time goes on. He says they can have up to 12 trainers on site on any given day, especially for the larger tournaments Grand Park brings in.

Rosenberg adds the recent announcement that the Indianapolis Colts are bringing their summer training camp to Grand Park did not play a factor in the decision to locate a clinic inside the Grand Park Events Center. However, he says when training camp is underway, the clinic will close and solely be used by the team.
