Improving communities through sport


Medical Sector Partnerships

Improving the health and economic outcomes in a community requires a multi-stakeholder approach to development.

When a city, private sector, and medical sector partners come together kids and families gain access to sport, new developments are created, and hospital systems enjoy a unique lifelong interaction with athletes and active families. 

SF Companies is leading the future of youth sports and parks and recreation with metrics-based reporting on social determinants of health and through innovative partnerships with medical systems. If you are seeking opportunities in the sports medicine, orthopedic, diabetes prevention, wellness, and community engagement SFC has transformational solutions that center around youth and amateur sports.

By co-locating within our venues through a variety of tenant-lease options, medical partners can benefit from direct as well as downstream revenue streams, leverage existing strategic marketing platforms, promote areas of expertise and deliver general education and wellness messaging as well as community-based activation strategies. In short, our venues can play an important role in helping hospitals and healthcare service providers grow brand equity and drive preference within the local and regional marketplace.

SFM Network venues offer access to an affluent, high-profile audience of young athletes and families and represent a unique, high-energy, rehabilitation and training environment in a non-clinical setting. From physical therapy to sports medicine, orthopedic and even urgent care, hospitals and healthcare service providers (as tenants within the core sports complex) can benefit from an enhanced patient/customer experience and an ability build market share through advanced technology platforms that are all becoming an integral part of the next generation of sports, wellness and entertainment venues.

Talk to one of our development advisors about how co-locating and/or partnering with one of our existing and/or newly planned venues can help your organization leverage the power of the growing youth sports marketplace.

How We Help

SFA can share insight/information on the variety of ways that medical partners are integrating into the youth and amateur sports complex environment, providing relevant case studies and facilitating personalized tours of select venues within the SFM Network.

Last year our venues saw more than 25 million visits. A number that will continue to grow, fueling a variety of medical partnerships, naming rights opportunities and service agreements.

Capitalizing of the sheer volume of customers that participate on an annual basis at youth sports venues can be challenging, but new predictive and prescriptive performance testing platforms (with tests that take just minutes to administer) are becoming increasingly available. These testing tools can elevate the conversation between medical partners and prospective target audiences about prevention of injuries and increased athletic performance.

Additionally, SFA has served over 2,000 communities since its start in 2003 and are currently overseeing multiple new developments that include new hotels, entertainment venues, restaurants, and retail attractions. The economic impact of these mixed-use developments driven by the boom in sports tourism can be transformational to communities.
