School is just around the corner and Fall athletic teams are gearing up for practices. Does your child need his or her sports physical updated? Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) is making it easy to get this back-to-school task done by offering Saturday Sports Physicals on August 13 and August 27 between 9:00am and 1:00pm at the Downtown Pediatric Clinic.
Walk-ins are welcome – but are not guaranteed to be seen – so an appointment is recommended. To schedule an appointment on Saturday, August 13 or Saturday, August 27 call 612-873-6963 and ask for a “pediatric sports physical.” (You can also call this number to schedule a weekday pediatric sports physical.)
For your convenience, you can download and fill out the Minnesota State High School League’s 2016-2017 Sports Qualifying Physical Examination Clearance Form and bring it to your child’s appointment for our health care providers to complete.
