Major league team gets major league care
At the April 5, 2016 game against the Mets, KC Manager Ned Yost presented Royals players and staff with rings commemorating their 2015 World Series championship (click here for KC Star Article). Just recently, the physicians at KU, who are part of the official healthcare provider team, received personalized versions of this tribute to the incredible 2015 season, for their roles. KU Eye's Miranda Bishara, MD and Paul Munden, MD, pictured above, proudly posed with their Royals bling, for which they were sized when providing vision exams and screenings for the Royals players at Spring Training in Arizona earlier in the year.
The University of Kansas Hospital, in partnership with The University of Kansas Physicians, is proud to be the official healthcare provider for the Kansas City Royals. Team members and fans alike enjoy major league care at Kauffman Stadium.
Along with an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist, KU Eye ophthalmologists lead a deep bench of physicians. They provide the team with physical assessments at spring training, and on-site care and first aid for players and fans at every Royals home game.
Our hospital and the Royals host Health Awareness Days, VIP Patient Days and other events for fans at Kauffman Stadium.
KU Eye physicians provide leading-edge eye care and treatment for players during training, practice and games and fans at every home game. The partnership between the hospital and the Chiefs also extends into the community. Our sports medicine specialists work with Chiefs players and staff to offer sports education for young athletes. And by working together, we are able to research sports-related health issues.
It's a winning combination of the best in healthcare and professional sports.
