WKU statement regarding Request for Proposals for sports medicine complex

On September 26, 2016, WKU issued a Request for Proposals seeking a medical provider to lease the campus health clinic, provide orthopedic services for student athletes and construct a Sports Medicine Complex on the WKU campus, with a deadline of November 15 for submission of proposals.

The University has determined that no proposal met all of the requirements of the RFP. Therefore, WKU is unable to award a contract and is officially closing the current RFP process.

WKU will continue exploring options for leasing the health clinic space at a fair market value rate. That is currently not the arrangement with Graves Gilbert Clinic, which will operate the on-campus clinic through December 16, 2016.

Medical Center Orthopaedics is the current provider of orthopedic care for all WKU sports teams for the remainder of the 2016-17 academic year. WKU Athletics is responsible for determining the orthopedic care provider for student athletes.

An indoor multi-sport complex remains a top priority for our Student Intramural-Recreation Sports office as well as for WKU Athletics. We will continue to pursue options to build such a facility through private support or other means.
