For 100+ years, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) has overseen countless championship memories: the joy of victory, the agony of defeat, and even the pain of injury. As the official healthcare provider of the KHSAA, UK HealthCare brings the most comprehensive, expert care in the state to talented high school athletes — keeping these students on the court and the field.

“UK HealthCare recognizes the importance of supporting the core of our communities in high school sports, and through this partnership, we’re able to create a lasting impact for student-athletes,” said Sara Hacker, Teall Properties Group/KHSAA general manager of sponsorships.

From Pikeville to Paducah, Maysville to Middlesboro, and everywhere in between, this expanded relationship ensures high school athletes and their families have access to resources from Kentucky’s No. 1 hospital, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report.

UK HealthCare’s team of athletic trainers, doctors, nurses, and other specialists provide KHSAA coaches, athletes, and families with cutting-edge treatment + care, expert advice, and guidance on protocols and regulations with a strong emphasis on player safety and longevity during their high school career — and beyond.

This relationship isn’t just about athletic training and winning; it’s about ensuring the health and safety of all Kentuckians — a broader commitment that UK HealthCare makes each and every day. Learn more.
