Officials celebrated a new partnership on Sept. 4, as Keck Medicine of USC, the Los Angeles Kings and Meyer Institute of Sport held a ribbon-cutting for the Toyota Sports Performance Center in El Segundo, a new sports medicine and athletic rehabilitation center. The facility, formerly known as the Toyota Sports Center, is located at 555 N. Nash St. and will provide services to the LA Kings, youth sports teams and to the surrounding communities.

“As we set out for a new vision at our facility, our goal was to create the premier sports science operation. It was imperative to support our teams here with the Kings and AEG with the best in the world,” Kings Sports Chief Operating Officer Kelly Cheeseman said.

“We also strive to best serve the community stakeholders in the South Bay here at the Toyota Sports Performance Center. With our new partners from Keck Medicine of USC and the Meyer Institute of Sport we certainly have achieved that. We are very proud to welcome them into our home and look forward to the years ahead together as partners,” Cheeseman said.

“We are thrilled to extend our services to the LA Kings, as well as members of the South Bay Community,” said Jay R. Lieberman, MD, chair and professor of orthopaedic surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC and chief of orthopaedic surgery at Keck Medicine. “The clinic location in the Toyota Sports Performance Center offers convenient access to our highly regarded faculty, who are committed to providing the best possible care to athletes of all levels.”
