Maidstone United and KIMS Hospital have announced a partnership that will see the private facility provide medical services to the club’s professional players.
As well as diagnostic scans and injury treatments, it will also provide screening services, such as electrocardiograms, in its cardiology department to detect and prevent underlying health issues and maintain players’ fitness.
KIMS Hospital CEO Simon James said: “Supporting the local community sits at the heart of KIMS Hospital’s ethos. We are therefore delighted to be working with Maidstone United to help keep their team fit and healthy.”
Paul Smith, Maidstone United’s sports and rehab physiotherapist, said: “The partnership has already been valuable this season, with a number of our players attending the hospital.”
