The Connecticut State Golf Association is pleased to announce a new partnership with Middlesex Health, the comprehensive health system that oversees Middlesex Hospital and provides a network of expert health care providers throughout Middlesex County and the shoreline. Middlesex Health becomes the “Official Health Care Provider” of the CSGA, and will play an active role in providing health related information to CSGA members and golfers throughout Connecticut.
"We believe this is a partnership that can be of great benefit to our golf population,” says CSGA Executive Director, Mike Moraghan. “To have such a partner and resource as Middlesex Health can be of real value. It’s not overstating things to say that connecting folks with medical experts can be a positive, oftentimes life changing experience for people.”
Middlesex Health will have a presence at CSGA tournaments in 2021, and will provide regular information on a variety of topics through articles and videos in the CSGA’s twice-monthly “eRevision Newsletter.”
"Middlesex Health is proud to join forces with the Connecticut State Golf Association," says President and CEO Vincent G. Capece, Jr. "Golf is a game that can be played by people of all ages. It's a sport that is associated with good health and wellness, and studies show that golf may be associated with longevity as well. Middlesex Health is a community health system that has a network of facilities and services throughout Middlesex County. As CSGA's health partner, we look forward to being a resource for health tips, helpful information and medical services to keep Connecticut's golf enthusiasts healthy."
