THIBODAUX – Thibodaux Regional Health System teamed up with Nicholls State University Athletics to provide on-going COVID-19 testing for its student-athletes, coaches and staff. Thibodaux Regional performed over 250 initial tests in an effort to help the football, volleyball, cross-country and soccer teams begin practice in a safe manner.
“We realized we needed to secure testing after the NCAA mandate was released. We can’t thank Thibodaux Regional Health System enough for providing the COVID-19 test for each athlete required on such short notice,” said Tim Rebowe, Nicholls head football coach. “Not only did Thibodaux Regional provide us with testing, but were able to deliver results in an expedited manner. We are so thankful for our partnership with them.”
Thibodaux Regional CEO Greg Stock is happy to provide testing to help athletes and coaches quickly and safely return to sporting activities.
“Thibodaux Regional and Nicholls Athletics have a long history of working together to keep student-athletes safe and well. Our Sports Medicine Center provides athletic training services and care to Nicholls student-athletes on a daily basis,” Stock said.
Thibodaux Regional Health System, a 210-bed acute care facility, provides inpatient and outpatient care for the people of Lafourche and seven surrounding parishes. For more information, visit www.thibodaux.com.
