EDMOND, Okla. – OU Medical Center is not renewing the contract for the Edmond Public Schools athletic trainers for this next school year.

Hospital officials say this was a difficult decision but was necessary due to Medicaid cuts.

School officials are trying to sign a new contract with another provider but are concerned student athletes could be left without services while they wait on a vote from the school board.
