Skip to main content



Purdue University Northwest, in partnership with Community Hospital, Munster officially opened the campus-based Community Hospital Athletic Training and Physical Therapy Center in April of 2015.

The center is designed to provide training and injury-related services to Purdue Northwest student-athletes, as well as outpatient, rehabilitation care for students, faculty-staff and their dependents, and members of the university’s Fitness Center on a referral, fee-for-service basis.  

The center was generously funded by Community Hospital, Munster, one of Purdue Northwest athletics’ primary Corporate Champions and supporters.

Two athletic trainers, a physical therapist and two athletic trainer student interns, supervised by Community Hospital, will staff the 1,795 square foot center. The rehab professionals will employ hospital modalities in the clinic and utilize exercise equipment within the university’s adjacent Fitness Center to enable a comprehensive recovery program for patients.

Since 2013, Purdue Northwest has contracted with Community Hospital for services of licensed and certified athletic trainers to provide fitness and medical assistance to university student-athletes. Community Hospital also provides staffing and consultation for Purdue Northwest’s campus-based health clinic, available to students, faculty and staff.
