Humboldt General Hospital to Offer Free Sports Physicals to Area Youth

Humboldt General Hospital has set the date for this year’s free sports physicals. The 2016 exams will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, July 16, at the new HGH Clinics West Campus building, located at 51 E. Haskell Street.

This is the eighth year that HGH has offered free sports physicals to all Lowry High School, McDermitt High School, Winnemucca Junior High School and Humboldt County youth sports organization athletes who will participate in school-sanctioned or community sports.

Additionally, any other youth in need of a physical examination for other activities such as scouting are invited to participate.

Students will be served on a first-come, first-served basis; no appointments will be scheduled. Last check-in is 11 a.m.

Free physicals are only offered during each year’s sports physical clinic and are not available free of charge from HGH providers at any other time.

Humboldt General Hospital will provide copies of the NIAA sports physical form that students will need. Other students, such as scouts, will need to bring their respective forms. All students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
