Major League Baseball club the Los Angeles Angels has agreed a multi-year partnership with health system MemorialCare.
As the Angels’ Official Healthcare Partner, the two parties will focus on positively impacting the health and wellness of Angels fans and the larger Orange County and Los Angeles County communities by raising awareness of issues such as cardiac health, cancer and other life-altering conditions.
Community outreach will include Initiative Nights at Angel Stadium that support and raise funds for specific health issues, MemorialCare sponsorship of the annual Angels 5K and Health Expo, and volunteer days with employees of the Angels and MemorialCare at local charities.
MemorialCare will also offer healthy living workshops, health screenings and other programs that advance healthy and active lifestyles to Angels employees.
“With this partnership we will delight children at MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach with visits from Angels players, participate jointly in mission-driven fundraisers that support the communities we serve, and have a strong brand presence at the games,” Barry Arbuckle, president and chief executive of MemorialCare, said.
MemorialCare has four premier hospitals and more than 200 care locations in Orange and Los Angeles counties.
