St. Francis Hospital is at the Travelers Championship this week to take care of any injuries or medical issues on the course.
It's like a mini hospital at the TPC River Highlands with an eight-bed treatment tent, a command trailer, several mobile teams and three medical tents throughout the course.
With temperatures into the 80s, the most common thing providers are seeing is heat exhaustion.
John Quinlavin, who is the St. Francis Hospital director of medical services, said people visiting the golf tournament should drink lots of water and "be aware of what's going on." Quinlavin also suggested to "take it easy and enjoy" the golf tournament.
Some other common reasons to visit the medical tent were headaches, falls, and bee stings.
Fortunately, most of the injuries can be treated on site, so spectators can get back out on the course.
St. Francis has been providing medical care at the Travelers for the last 16 years.
