Northwell Health, New York State’s largest health care provider and private employer, and the New York Islanders Hockey Club today announced a deepening of their already extensive decades-long relationship by naming Northwell the team’s practice jersey sponsor.
As the Islanders kick off their 50th Anniversary season with the opening of training camp this week at the Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow, it marks the first time a sponsor’s logo has graced the practice jersey of Islanders players. Northwell already is the official health care provider of the New York Islanders and official health care provider of the Northwell Health Ice Center. In addition, Northwell Health Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation Services (STARS) is the official physical therapy provider of the Islanders’ practice facility.
“The New York Islanders have an identity that’s celebrated and deeply rooted in the communities that we serve, so we’re excited as a health system to continue our collaboration with them,” said Ramon Soto, senior vice president and chief marketing and communications officer at Northwell. “These two storied brands have a mission that includes promoting the health and wellness of Long Islanders – through hockey and health care. And that relationship extends beyond the ice.”
Northwell, the Islanders and UBS Arena have worked together to foster community-based wellness programming since 2020. The organizations will focus on youth community enrichment, women’s health and mental health awareness initiatives throughout the 2022-23 NHL season. Northwell is a founding partner of UBS Arena.
“Northwell has been an invaluable supporter of the Islanders over the years and we’re thrilled to extend our partnership with this practice jersey collaboration,” said Simone Perrin, vice president of marketing for the Islanders.
