Wentworth-Douglass To Provide Athletic Training Services To Marshwood High School

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital is teaming up with Marshwood High School in South Berwick, Maine to provide athletic training to the “Hawks” for the upcoming 2022-2023 season.

The addition of Marshwood High School means that Wentworth-Douglass will provide athletic training services to eight local schools during the upcoming academic year.

“Mass General Brigham Sports Medicine at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital offers one of the most comprehensive, integrated musculoskeletal programs in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, southern Maine, and northern Massachusetts,” said Kendra Langus, PT, DPT, senior director of rehabilitation services at Wentworth-Douglass. “We are very excited to be entrusted with the care of the athletes at Marshwood High School. Athletic trainers are a critical factor to ensure athletes are prepared for competition and practice.”

The partnership with Wentworth-Douglass will give Marshwood access to an athletic trainer and the hospital’s sports medicine programming.

“We are pleased to be partnering with Wentworth Douglass and Mass General Brigham in supplying various medical care for our student athletes here at Marshwood,” said Marshwood Athletic Director Rich Buzzell. “Our goal is to provide our student athletes with the best possible experience and innovative care in dealing with sports injuries and restoring our injured athletes back to their best possible condition.”

Dr. Gavin Webb, of Wentworth Health Partners Seacoast Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, said the sports medicine team is excited to work with Marshwood and the new partnership is a natural fit.

“We share the same vision of maintaining a healthy environment in which athletes can safely reach their potential and look forward to bringing the experience of our team to this relationship,” Webb said.

In addition to Marshwood, trainers from Wentworth-Douglass will spend the upcoming season working with athletes from Dover High School, Spaulding High School, Somersworth High School, Portsmouth High School, Oyster River High School, Farmington High School and Great Bay Community College.

“Wentworth-Douglass Hospital is extremely relationship focused and we are very proud to provide athletic training services to our local schools,” Langus said. “It’s very rewarding to partner with these schools on improving the health of the athletes in our communities.”
