Dignity Health, one of the nation’s largest health care systems, has partnered with AEG and, effective Jan. 1, 2019, the official home of the five-time Major League Soccer Cup champions LA Galaxy will be renamed Dignity Health Sports Park (DHSP).
As part of the agreement, Dignity Health will have exclusive naming rights to the stadium (currently StubHub Center) and will be the official health care partner of the LA Galaxy. The partnership has been specifically designed to give back to Los Angeles communities, particularly those surrounding DHSP. This will include the implementation of a wide range of health and wellness programs.
Dignity Health will also work directly with the LA Galaxy Foundation, the charitable arm of the LA Galaxy. Through this partnership, they will host numerous annual community events at DHSP and throughout Greater Los Angeles in conjunction with Dignity Health’s Hello humankindness™ brand. This reflects Dignity Health’s commitment to meet the needs of every patient and family member who seeks care with respect, compassion and dignity. The LA Galaxy Foundation shares this belief, and spends countless hours giving back to the community at local schools, hospitals, fields and events.
Dignity Health will provide in-stadium first aid services as well as have its mobile wellness clinic onsite throughout the season. Dignity Health will support LA Galaxy youth program initiatives, including the club’s local youth team affiliates and youth soccer tournaments like LA Galaxy Cup and Copa LA. LA Galaxy players will make regular visits to Dignity Health hospitals each year, meeting with patients and support staff. Viewing parties will also be held for patients at Dignity Health hospitals for select LA Galaxy games, with LA Galaxy Star Squad and mascot Cozmo set to attend various events.
The LA Galaxy will kick off the 2019 Major League Soccer Season at Dignity Health Sports Park in March. The LA Galaxy’s home opener at Dignity Health Sports Park, along with the entire 2019 LA Galaxy MLS schedule, will be announced at a later date.
