World’s Best Ski and Snowboard Athletes Partner with World Class Hospital

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, December 14, 2016 / -- Park City, Utah, is known for its world-class snow, world-class resorts and world-class athletes. But this quaint mountain town can also boast world-class accolades in another category: medical care.

Since opening in 2009, Intermountain Park City Hospital has received numerous awards for its high-quality care and excellent clinical outcomes. That’s just one of the many reasons the US Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) named the hospital an official medical provider.

"With hundreds of athletes training regularly at our Center of Excellence, it's a great benefit to have access to world-renowned physicians, laboratory services, and surgical and emergency care right here in Park City," said USSA Medical Director Kyle Wilkens. “And having a designated trauma center just steps from our training center is really reassuring to our coaches, our athletes, and their parents.”

While the USSA partners with other medical providers around the country, it shares a campus with Intermountain Park City Hospital, making this partnership as convenient as it is valuable. “There’s something to be said for knowing our athletes are recovering from their injuries and, more importantly, receiving preventive care, just up the street from the Center of Excellence,” added Wilkens. “It allows for a more seamless experience and transition back to our training program.”

Athletes who have trusted their knees, ankles, backs and shoulders to Intermountain Park City Hospital include, Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety, world champion ski jumper Sarah Hendrickson, and aerials World Cup champion and two-time Olympian Ashley Caldwell.

“We are thrilled to be an official medical provider for the USSA athletes,” noted Intermountain Park City Hospital administrator Si Hutt. “This partnership means the best skiers and snowboarders in the world trust our doctors and our facility to get them fixed up and back on the hill as quickly as possible, and that’s a pretty powerful endorsement.”

Intermountain Park City Hospital is part of the Intermountain Healthcare system of not-for-profit hospitals and clinics. More information can be found at:
