Rockville Centre, NY – Mercy Medical Center has entered into an agreement to provide medical services for Molloy College’s Athletic Department. Experienced sports medicine physicians and orthopedists from Mercy are now serving as their team physicians for all male and female teams.
“We are happy to partner with Molloy,” said Aaron E. Glatt, MD, executive vice president and chief administrative officer of Mercy Medical Center. “Bringing Mercy’s key physicians to assist athletes and, hopefully, prevent injuries will help the athletes’ performance."
Mercy's Director of Orthopedics Eric Freeman, MD (South Island Orthopaedic Group), Michael Moskowitz, DO (Bellmore Family Practice), and Jennifer Khachadurian, DO (Dr. Robert Curran PLLC), are managing the care of Molloy’s student athletes. As Molloy’s team physicians, they will perform annual athlete physicals, attend Molloy home games, and provide weekly onsite medical services.

The proximity of the Molloy College campus to the Mercy makes this agreement logistically beneficial as well.”
