The Canavan Sports Medicine Center opened during the 2007-08 academic year and became fully operational in August 2008. The center is the primary sports medicine facility for each of the College's 300+ student-athletes and its working space is roughly 4,000 square feet. This state-of-the-art facility includes nine treatment tables with assorted modality equipment, office space for the eight certified athletic trainers on staff. The space also provides two physician clinic offices, where primary care, orthopedic, chiropractic and podiatric physicians evaluate our student-athletes on a weekly basis. There also is a large rehabilitation/exercise area in the facility that houses a SwimEx rehab pool, one eight-person hot plunge pool and one eight-person cold plunge pool. On October 17, 2008, Athletics Director Robert G. Driscoll, Jr. and Providence College President Reverend Brian J. Shanley welcomed Joe Canavan `65 and wife, MaryBeth, to Alumni Hall to officially open The Canavan Sports Medicine Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
