Intermountain is partnering with the Las Vegas Raiders, a National Football League team, to support and promote community health and wellness in Nevada and Utah.
When the Raiders move from Oakland to Las Vegas in 2020, the team's market area will cover both Utah and Nevada. Utah is an important market for the team, and the bi-state footprint means our joint outreach initiatives will engage both communities year-round. The partnership will be funded largely through Intermountain's planned growth and operations in Nevada.
Our partnership will focus on the Raiders' practice and performance center in Henderson, Nevada — different than Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, where games will be played. The facility will be named after Intermountain and is where much of our community health activity will take place. Intermountain will also be the official healthcare partner for the Raiders. Our arrangement with the Raiders is similar to partnerships between other healthcare systems and major sports teams, such as Baylor Scott & White and the Dallas Cowboys, Virginia Mason and the Seattle Seahawks, University of Colorado Health and the Denver Broncos, and University of Utah Health and the Utah Jazz.
"We're thrilled to be a partner with the Raiders as we focus on community health," says Marc Harrison, MD, Intermountain president and CEO. "We've met with Raiders' leadership several times and have been very impressed with their commitment to the community, as well as to health and wellness among players, staff, families, and fans. We share a clear and common purpose in supporting our communities as well as values we can both be proud of. We're committed to working together to bring many positive, vibrant, and sustainable health programs to our communities. With this partnership, Intermountain Healthcare is working to extend our mission to more people — expanding in ways that help people live the healthiest lives possible."
"We're pleased to welcome Intermountain Healthcare as the naming rights partner for our new, state-of-the-art performance center," says Raiders President Marc Badain. "Together, we're aligned in our investment in outreach programs and are committed to improving community and civic health through multiple platforms."
The Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center and Raiders Headquarters will include offices along with a 150,000-square-foot field house that will house one-and-a-half indoor football fields. There will also be three outdoor football fields and a 50,000-square-foot performance center. The facility is currently under construction and is set to open the summer of 2020.
