The Springfield Lucky Horseshoes are proud to announce Memorial Care, Memorial Health’s primary care and urgent care brand, as the new presenting partner of Springfield’s baseball team. The three-year deal will begin in the 2023 season and Memorial Care will have a strong presence at Robin Roberts Stadium in the coming years.
“This partnership with Memorial Care sets the foundation for the Springfield Lucky Horseshoes in the community for years to come, and we couldn’t be happier to collaborate with a local partner,” said ‘Shoes Chief Storyteller Jamie Toole. “Memorial Health has played an integral part in the Springfield community since 1897 and is a healthcare leader throughout the central Illinois region. With them involved with the fun at Robin Roberts Stadium, we’re confident the ‘Shoes are looking at just as successful a run in the Capital City.”
“Memorial Care is excited to partner with Springfield Lucky Horseshoes,” said Travis Dowell, president of Memorial Medical Group. “We share a commitment to building a stronger, healthier and more active community. We look forward to not only being a part of winning baseball, but also working together to find new ways to connect Memorial Care providers with the public to improve the health of our community.”
