SARANAC LAKE — Adirondack Health and Lake Placid Sports Medicine have joined the U.S. Olympic Committee’s National Medical Network, an affiliation of national and regional medical centers that provide care to elite U.S. athletes.
Through the network, athletes receive orthopedic care, primary medical and dental care, neurosurgery and more. Adirondack Health is the only full-service health system in the Adirondack Park, and Lake Placid Sports Medicine provides a full range of orthopedic surgical services.
“We are extremely pleased to have Adirondack Health and Lake Placid Sports Medicine join the National Medical Network,” said Alan Ashley, USOC chief of sport performance. “The purpose of this medical network is to provide convenient and quality services for world-class athletes. The variety and value of services that this collaborative project will provide is a true game changer for Team USA.”
Chandler Ralph, Adirondack Health’s president and chief executive officer, said they are proud that the caliber of their care has been recognized by the USOC.
“Meeting the needs of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes who live, train and compete in our area is an integral part of what Adirondack Health does. We’re equally committed to our local athletes, whose passions range from skiing to school athletics and everything in between.”
Dr. Eugene Byrne, who along with Dr. William Smith and Dr. Daniel Bullock, are orthopedic surgeons with Lake Placid Sports Medicine, said their organization will continue to provide Team USA with the highest level of orthopedic care to allow elite athletes to train and compete at the highest level possible.
