ORD, Neb. – Valley County Health System (VCHS) Medical Clinics at Burwell, Loup City and Ord will offer sports physicals six select dates for area students this summer. The sports physicals will be completed on a walk-in/no appointment and first-come, first-served basis at the following clinic locations on the specified dates and times.

Sports physicals include a basic physical exam and take 15 minutes to complete. Sports physicals cost $30 and are not billable to insurance. Cash or check payment is due at the time of service. Student-athletes are asked to bring their physical form and sports card to their physical; parent/guardian signature is required. The forms are available at area schools.

If a child is unable to complete a sports physical during one of the six offered times, they may schedule a comprehensive wellness exam at VCHS, available year-round, during which the required sports physical form can also be completed.

Wellness exams are often covered by insurance and include a complete physical, medical history review, immunization review, cognitive development review and discussion about nutrition, physical activity, sleep and health risks. Students entering kindergarten, 7th grade and college are required to complete a full wellness exam, including lab work and immunizations.

“Sports and other activities are an important part of the high school experience,” VCHS Medical Clinics Manager Gary Satchell said. “Sports physicals and wellness exams help determine if your child is healthy and ready to participate in high school athletics and activities.”
