September 11, 2013

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Florida Hospital announced a new partnership focused on improving the health of the Bay area community and beyond. 

As part of the partnership, Florida Hospital and the Bucs will launch health initiatives designed to engage the community and transform places of work, home and play. 

“We all know the best offense is a good defense and in health, the same rules apply,” said Adventist Health System’s Florida Region President and CEO Mike Schultz. “Florida Hospital has an important role to play in creating a healthier community. We are very excited to partner together in an effort to bring new health programs into the community.” 

Florida Hospital operates 23 hospitals across the state. Its multi-year partnership with the Buccaneers includes plans for several community wide health events such as a Day of Wellness and Fitness Challenge. 

“The Buccaneers take great pride in aligning with industry leaders such as Florida Hospital,” said Buccaneers Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer. “This partnership will be special because it provides a real opportunity to make a difference in our region through health education.  Florida Hospital has distinguished itself as the premier healthcare provider in our state and we look forward to the activation of various community-based programs and initiatives.”
