Bridgeport Express Care functions not only as an urgent care center but as a family practice, and this year, David Peasak has started working with Bridgeport High School’s football team.
One method Bridgeport Express Care has used to help local sports teams is by providing free sports physicals.
“We feel like that’s a service that we can provide the community to do those for free for children,” King said. “It helps them to get back on the ﬁeld.”
Bridgeport Express Care also oﬀers an on-call service for the sports teams, she said.
“If there’s an injury on the football ﬁeld, and they just need an ankle X-ray, we can send someone in to do the X-ray and take a look at it that night if we need to,” King said.
Helping out the local community is important to the staﬀ of Bridgeport Express Care, King said.
