Barclays Center and The Brooklyn Hospital Center to Partner in Keeping Brooklyn Healthy
The Brooklyn Hospital Center has entered into an exciting partnership with Barclays Center as its official Hometown Hospital.
“We are thrilled to be the official Hometown Hospital of Barclays Center, which is continuing the renaissance of downtown Brooklyn,” said hospital President and CEO Dr. Richard B. Becker. “Our partnership with Barclays Center will aim to keep Brooklyn healthy by providing a very visible and important platform to accomplish our goals.”
“The Brooklyn Hospital Center has been a Brooklyn institution for more than 160 years,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Barclays Center. “We’re dedicated to teaming with the hospital in promoting health and wellness.”
One of the most exciting aspects of the sponsorship will be The Brooklyn Hospital Center’s Interactive Space located on the main concourse of Barclays Center. The Interactive Space will be open during arena events and feature entertaining, interactive health care information for the public.
The Brooklyn Hospital Center will also sponsor all Barclays Center promoted high-school-related events and host a BROOKLYN HOOPS™ basketball camp for 50 kids. In addition, TBHC will conduct health education and screenings, providing giveaways, activities, and valuable health tips for fans and athletes in conjunction with the Barclays Center Mobile Unit—The Experience— throughout the community, as well as at its annual health fair in Fort Greene Park and at the Barclays Center outdoor plaza.
