October is right around the corner, and we have baseball on our minds. Sure, it's partially because we are true blue Dodger fans looking forward to the postseason with high hopes and baited breath (maybe this really is our year!). But there's another reason. Recently we've had several opportunities to combine our two passions -- baseball and doing great work for our clients. What could be better than that?
Baseball Great Serves as Spokesperson for Care N' Care
Baseball Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan is once again serving as company spokesperson for Care N' Care, a Fort Worth-based Medicare Advantage health plan. Ryan is widely considered one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history with seven no-hitters and more than 5,000 strikeouts. He is also a Care N' Care member. "I not only endorse Care N' Care, I trust them with my health," said Ryan. 

(How much did we love writing this press release?!)

Dodgers Help OIC Celebrate Urgent Care Center Groundbreaking
The Orthopaedic Institute for Children has broken ground on a new urgent care center that will more than double the size of its current urgent care facility. The groundbreaking was celebrated on September 23 at "Ozzie's Birthday Bash," an annual event that brings together hundreds of local children, their families, and "Ozzie," OIC's well-known mascot. All children in attendance received a Dodgers baseball cap compliments of the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation. Participating in the groundbreaking activities was former Dodgers pitcher Dennis Powell.
