75 students receive free physicals

August 8, 2013

BFHS athletic director Steve Morton.
Boundary Community Hospital hosted another successful Free Sports Physical clinic Tuesday, August 6.  The medical staff of Boundary Community Hospital, along with hospital employee volunteers, Boundary County School District coaches, and the high school athletic director came to the outpatient clinic of Boundary Community Hospital to help students complete their physicals.


At one point, the long line of students and their parents snaked out from the entrance door of the hospital, down through the parking lot almost reaching the city road.


75 students received physicals, which included tests of vision, height, weight, and urine analysis, as well as an entire series of range-of motion tests in the Rehabilitation department. The students’ last stop was a visit to a physician for a complete exam.


Marcia Morman, community relations coordinator, says “thank-you” to all the hospital employees and Medical Staff who helped.


“All of the volunteers stayed after a full work day to put in another two hours to perform this community service,” Marcia said. “This is a big impact on our community. I am always impressed with the wonderful attitude of our hospital employees and their spirit of volunteerism. The help from the school coaches and athletic director, Steve Morton made the evening tasks flow smoothly and quickly, which everyone, the students and the volunteers, appreciated! “
