MGH Sports Medicine Center: Ready, set, go

To commemorate its recent move to a new, state-of-the-art space on the fourth floor of 175 Cambridge St., the MGH Sports Medicine Center hosted an open house Feb.1 for MGHers, clinicians and guests to view the new facility. More than 100 people attended the event, which included a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Peter L. Slavin, MD, president of the MGH; Bertram Zarins, MD, chief of Sports Medicine; Thomas Gill, MD, medical director of Sports Medicine; Harry Rubash, MD, chief of Orthopædic Surgery; and Jim Zachazewski, PT, DPT, clinical director of Sports Medicine.

Visitors had the opportunity to meet the sports medicine physicians and the expert team of clinicians who work alongside them — including nurses, physical therapists, primary care physicians, sports medicine fellows, radiologists and radiology technologists. The new facility features 18,000 square feet of contemporary space and equipment dedicated to the special requirements of patients with sports injuries.

The MGH Sports Medicine Center provides expert medical evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of sports-related and musculoskeletal injuries for patients who have shoulder, knee, ankle and elbow disorders. The center staff see athletes of all levels, including amateur, recreational and professional. For more information about the center, call (617) 726-7500.
