MHP donates $3,280 to Schools

MHP donates $3,280 to area schools

Mahaska Health Partnership providers offered sports physicals in June and July for middle and high school-age athletes. The physicals were offered at a reduced rate, and this year’s proceeds of $3,280 are now being donated back to the athletes’ schools.

According to MHP Director of Specialty Services Andrea Hagist, RN, the sports physical program at MHP is a great way to give back to the community. “It also encourages the students to get the exam they need before playing sports, and the $20 cost makes it a little easier when they know the money is going to benefit their school.”

Physicals were offered in Oskaloosa by Pediatrician John O’Brien, MD, and Adult Nurse Practitioner Lisa Nelson, both located on the MHP campus. Melissa Lamb, ARNP, provided sports physicals in New Sharon at New Sharon Medical Center.

Schools who received proceeds from the sports physical program are Eddyville-Blakesburg, North Mahaska, Oskaloosa Christian School, Oskaloosa High School, Oskaloosa Middle School, Montezuma, Pella Christian and Tri-County. “This year, our proceeds from the sports physicals were up $1,210 from 2009,” Hagist said.

“We are pleased to be able to support our local athletes and their schools. This is just one of the ways that MHP is Making Healthcare Personal in the communities we serve.”
