After 40 years the Cleveland Browns ended their relationship with the Cleveland Clinic. I suspect this was one of the last deals former CEO Joe Banner worked out. When you think of professional athletes that play in the NFL, you always think of the great care they get if they sustain an injury.
You or I wouldn’t walk into a health care facility, and undergo an MRI for a bruise to our knee. We couldn’t even get an appointment in time. The Cleveland Browns have hired a new team doctor, the problem is this doctor doesn’t have a Ohio medical license as of yet.
The Browns put out a press release last week and told everyone on the hiring of James Voos M.D.. They went on to talk about all the experience Voos has as an NFL doctor. In reality, Voos was never an NFL doctor. As part of his training to become an orthopedic surgeon he completed his training with a couple of NFL teams. He was never the doctor in charge of any team.
Voos, should have his Ohio License in time for training camp to start. The funny thing is the Browns and Voos could have paid 1,000.00 to expedite the licensing process. They could have had him license in the state of Ohio within 10 days.
You have to wonder, why the Cleveland Browns would hire a guy who isn’t license in Ohio in the first place. The team received 30 million dollars in sponsorship money from University Hospitals and with all the doctors they have on staff, it’s surprising they couldn’t find one that could be the Browns new team doctor.
Why put the team through all this is it because Haslam is all about making money? We all know the answer to that question. You can read more about the team making money more of a priory than their players health by clicking here.
