New Sports Medicine Center Opens at YSU

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Korandovich Family Sports Medicine Center is now open in Beeghly Center at Youngstown State University.

Athletic trainers, physical therapists, primary care team physicians and orthopedic team physicians will deliver patient-centered physical and mental health care through a model of prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation at the 3,000-square-foot facility.

“We are very grateful for the support of Lisa and Bob Korandovich on helping us create this state-of-the-art center,” said Ron Strollo, executive director of YSU’s Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. “It’s an area that will be so beneficial to our student-athletes and staff.”

The center, which features two large plunge pools, functional rehabilitation space and a private physician exam room, will primarily serve the health care needs of YSU’s men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and swimming/diving programs.

“We proudly support YSU as a part of our family history and to support the next generation of students,” said Bob Korandovich, president and owner of KOREnergy Ltd. 

Korandovich earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from YSU in 1987 and was a member of the Penguins football team from 1982 to 1986.

“Lisa and I grew up on the West Side of Youngstown. Our grandfathers worked in the steel mills. My father was a machinist who, after retirement, traveled the world repairing and setting up complex machinery,” Korandovich said. “Lisa’s father earned his law degree after serving in WWII and set up a successful practice in Youngstown.”
