HEALTH & SAFETY
Safety is very important to us. The dedicated Campus Safety staff at IMG Academy is a valuable resource to our staff, student-athletes and guests to ensure that everyone feels secure when they’re on our campus. We take our residents’ safety very seriously, and we strive to offer the most comfortable living environment for every student-athlete.
Student-athletes have 24/7 access to the IMG Academy Health Services Center, which provides the care of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital (JHACH) right from the Bradenton campus. All IMG Academy on-staff nurses are affiliated with JHACH and are available to provide compassionate care for our student-athletes along with medical attention for any health concern that may arise.
Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital (JHACH), regarded by U.S. News & World Report as 2016’s ‘Best Children’s Hospital,’ provide sports medicine and general health care for the IMG Academy community inside the Campus Center.
Health Services can also distribute prescription medication at pre-designated times to ensure safe and proper medical treatment. Our student-athletes can also schedule on-campus appointments with our medical providers, or we can provide transportation to off-campus medical appointments, if needed.
The IMG Academy Campus Life staff manages our residence halls. Residential Mentors oversee our student-athletes in the residence halls and manage their daily activities and events.
We assign two Residential Mentors per floor to promote a safe atmosphere for our student-athletes. We also appoint student-athlete resident leaders and additional on-call Residential Mentors to maintain the overall safety and security of our residence halls. This presence of residence life staff, coaches, educators and adult mentors throughout our facility helps maintain a low student to adult ratio, which ensures the safety of our student-athletes.
CAMPUS SAFETY TEAM
The safety of IMG Academy staff, student-athletes and guests is our top priority. As we continue to enhance and expand our campus, we ensure that our campus safety and security efforts grow in step.
Our Campus Safety team oversees the 500-acre campus around the clock to promote a safe environment for our residents. The Campus Safety team staffs security checkpoints at every campus entrance and exit, and it provides ongoing safety patrol throughout the campus.
