A Word from the President: UCLA Health’s new partnership with the Dodgers By unews
Johnese Spisso, MPA President UCLA Health CEO UCLA Hospital System Associate Vice Chancellor, UCLA Health Sciences
On March 26, the Los Angeles Dodgers kicked off their spring training finale at Dodger Stadium with a first pitch from John Mazziotta, MD, PhD, vice chancellor of UCLA Health Sciences and CEO of UCLA Health. The ceremonial pitch celebrated UCLA Health’s new partnership with the Dodgers. The multi-year partnership marks an exciting opportunity for two influential organizations to work together to deliver on our joint missions of community service, fitness and health for a broad and diverse audience. As the “Official Medical Partner of the Los Angeles Dodgers,” UCLA Health providers will be on hand at the Dodger Stadium first aid station as a resource for fans. In the future, UCLA Health physicians will begin to provide care to players during home games and conduct the team’s annual physicals during Spring Training.
The partnership is also designed to expand our community outreach efforts, including with youth organizations and a variety of health and fitness programs that have an impact on lifelong wellness. The UCLA Mobile Eye Clinic, which has been providing free eye care services and glasses for underserved communities in Los Angeles County since 1975, will be co-branded with the Dodger logo and appear at the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation’s RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities) community events and select Dodger home games. Partnerships such as these will provide us with new opportunities to showcase our UCLA Health brand, expand our patient base and improve population health.
