UF Health to provide care to Team USA Olympic athletes

UF Health will treat Team USA Olympic athletes as they approach the 2024 Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games as part of a new partnership with the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Medical Network.

Officials are expected to announce the partnership at the University of Florida football game Saturday.

The partnership involves UF Health providing various types of care to Team USA athletes and aspiring Team USA athletes at no cost in exchange for the marketing power of the collaboration, Kevin Vincent, chair of UF’s physical medicine and rehabilitation department, told the Gainesville Sun.

Medical care will cover many different areas, he said, including pregnancy and dentistry, depending on an athlete’s needs.
