PULLMAN – Pullman Regional Hospital is holding a free sports physicals clinic for any middle or high school student-athlete. No health insurance or appointment is required.

The clinic will take place Saturday, August 12, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Family Medicine Residency Center, 825 SE Bishop Blvd. Suite 401, in Pullman. The Residency Center is best accessed by parking near Sid’s Pharmacy and using the door closest to the drive-thru.

Local Sports Medicine physicians Dr. Ed Tingstad and Dr. Mat Taylor will be among the practitioners providing the free physicals.

“Our goal is to continue to provide accessible, easy ways for the community to seek care,” says Dr. Ed Tingstad, Orthopedic Surgeon, Sports Medicine Physician, and Chief Medical Officer at Pullman Regional Hospital. “Dr. Taylor and I are grateful to serve our communities in this way, and we hope we have a line out the door.”

The State of Washington requires all students in 6th grade and up to receive a sports physical prior to playing school sports. Sports physicals in Washington are valid for two years.
