The Sacramento Kings announced that Kaiser Permanente will be the team’s new medical provider beginning with the 2013-14 National Basketball Association (NBA) season. Under this agreement, Kaiser Permanente sports medicine physicians, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, nutritionists and health fitness specialists will provide Kings players with care throughout the season.
Kaiser Permanente will also work closely with the Kings organization on a wide range of community health initiatives. This includes the Get Fit Timeout program in which Kings players, coaches and local celebrities join Kaiser Permanente clinicians to show local youth the importance of healthy eating and active living. Kaiser Permanente will also work with the Kings organization to expand healthy food options available for fans at Sleep Train Arena, the team’s home venue.
