SportHealthTM is a community partnership between PacificSport Vancouver Island and regional sport medicine practitioners - our SportHealthTM partners - who provide medical treatment, rehabilitation services and medical monitoring to registered athletes and/or coaches at a discounted rate.
The primary goal of SportHealthTM is to help PacificSport athletes identify, treat and prevent further injury through quality, specified treatment at reduced rates. Our SportHealthTM partners share this goal and recognize the important role they have in an athlete’s pursuit of podium performances.
The SportHealthTM program ensures that athletes with coverage through the Canadian Athletes Insurance Program (CAIP) or athletes with partial or no extended health coverage will only pay $50 per visit. As indicated in the PDF below, many SportHealthTM partners also offer additional services such as priority booking or product discounts.
