MemorialCare announced today that they have renewed their partnership with the Los Angeles Angels. In addition, Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach will continue as the official children’s hospital of Angels Baseball. Angels Catcher Logan O’Hoppe also joins as the hospital’s official player partner. This alliance will help increase the awareness of important pediatric health care initiatives throughout the Angels’ season.

“It is an honor to have Miller Children’s & Women’s named as the official children’s hospital of Angels Baseball, and we are grateful to Logan O’Hoppe for devoting his time and energy to connect with and encourage our patients and families this season,” says Yair Katz, chief executive, MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach. “We look forward to expanding awareness of pediatric health care initiatives and bringing joy to our patients and their families with the help of Logan and other Angels’ players and staff.”

O’Hoppe’s involvement will involve a range of activities, including hospital visits, recording videos to support Miller Children’s & Women’s initiatives, as well as hosting patients and their families from the hospital as special guests for the day at various Angels games.

“On behalf of the Angels, the Los Angeles community and my own family, I am honored to be partnering with MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital,” says O’Hoppe. “Miller Children’s investment in the comprehensive health and extraordinary care of patients and their families is second to none. After having the privilege to spend time with the patients and families last year, I knew I wanted to give back more. I look forward to spending time with and supporting Miller Children’s patients and families throughout the season and amplifying pediatric critical care and conditions in our community.”

The partnership between MemorialCare and Angels Baseball as the official health care sponsor extends for five years, through 2028.

“MemorialCare’s relationship with Angels Baseball helps raise awareness of important health initiatives and the extraordinary care that MemorialCare Health System provides to its patients. We are thankful for the team’s support in highlighting our health system’s successful efforts to serve our communities,” says Barry Arbuckle, president and CEO, MemorialCare. “We also look forward to extending the relationship to Miller Children’s & Women’s so that we can more prominently address matters unique to pediatric health.”
