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.”
