BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Lemak Sports Medicine & Orthopedics will provide medical services for athletes and events at the $46 million Crossplex indoor track and field and natatorium facility in Birmingham's Five Points West, officials told The Birmingham News.
As part of the deal that will be announced at an event today, Lemak Sports Medicine has agreed to provide the services in a $1 contract with the city of Birmingham.
Dr. Larry Lemak, chief executive of Lemak Sports Medicine, said he wanted his practice to be a part of the world-class Crossplex that is catching the eye of the track and field community in the region.
"It's a real opportunity for us having a facility like the Crossplex right here in our own backyard," Lemak said. "There is certainly nothing like it anywhere else in Alabama or even in the Southeast, for that matter. It's a great, state-of-the-art sporting facility."
