Kingsbridge Private Hospital Belfast
Kingsbridge are the only private GP in Northern Ireland and will provide the club with state-of-the-art care.
This includes MRI and CT scans in their scanning suite, cardiac screening and physiotherapy care amongst others.
Keefe said: “Ensuring the health, safety and fitness of our players is of paramount importance to the Belfast Giants. Kingsbridge are at the top of their game and were our first choice as a medical partner, so we are thrilled to be working with them for the next three seasons”.
He believes that the access to such quality medical care can improve the squad’s performance by keeping players at their peak.
This isn’t just exciting news for the players however as Keefe continued, saying: “We have exciting plans in the pipeline for health and wellbeing related content that will also benefit fans in the future”.
What these “exciting plans” for Giants’ fans could include remains to be seen but it’s something for supporters to keep an eye on.
Claire Winter, the Group Marketing Manager for Kingsbridge has said: “We will be on-hand for any of the players’ needs and they will have immediate access to contact us if there’s any medical issues or concerns, they have.
“Many of the Belfast Giants are not originally from Northern Ireland so we are pleased to be able to offer them and their families a home-from-home medical service at Kingsbridge Private Hospital”.
She continued by wishing the Irish side well in the rest of their season.
An exciting time for the Giants who are currently on a 10-game unbeaten run in the Elite League.
Sitting in third with four games in hand on second placed Cardiff Devils they’ll be hoping their new ‘teammate’ can help them cross the line.
