Supporting Fort Thomas Schools to build Fitness Center

Nicholas T. Gates, M.D.

Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers and St. Elizabeth Healthcare have taken another step to support Fort Thomas Education Foundation by participating in the design process and helping to provide equipment for the newly-opened Fitness Center. 

“We believe in supporting and giving back to our communities,” says Dr. Nicholas T. Gates, an orthopaedic surgeon with Commonwealth and the long-time Team Physician for Highlands High School.  “In addition to providing sports medicine services, our group appreciates the opportunity to help create a space that will contribute to the health and wellness of the entire student body.”

For many years, Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers and St. Elizabeth Healthcare have supported the Fort Thomas Independent Schools and Highlands High School athletics.  They provide team physician and athletic training services to all Highlands athletic programs.

Fort Thomas Independent Schools Superintendent Gene Kirchner added, “We are extremely grateful to Commonwealth Orthopedic and St Elizabeth Hospital for supporting our vision for the Highlands Fitness Center. Through this partnership we will develop a world-class model for promoting health and wellness that will positively impact our students, staff and the entire community of Fort Thomas.”
