Slam Dunk to the Beach

Community Connection is Bayhealth's Focus as Presenting Sponsor of Slam Dunk to the Beach 2023

Bayhealth is proud to announce its presenting sponsorship of the 2023 Hoophall East at Slam Dunk to the Beach elite high school basketball showcase slated for Dec. 26-29 at Cape Henlopen High School in Lewes. The partnership comes just over four months after opening Bayhealth Total Care on Rt. 9 in Milton and is an opportunity for Bayhealth to connect with community members and visitors alike.

Revived by the Delaware Sports Commission in 2014 and drawing over 4,500 attendees in 2022, Slam Dunk to the Beach has been a staple event in Sussex County for nearly a decade. It merged with the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Hoophall Brand in 2021 to become Hoophall East, one of four regional high school invitationals backed by the legendary organization.

As Bayhealth continues to expand its footprint in Kent and Sussex Counties to provide access to quality care close to home, a partnership with Slam Dunk just made sense.

“This opportunity really couldn’t have come at a better time for us with our recent addition to the Sussex County health care landscape in Bayhealth Total Care,” shared Interim Vice President, Marketing, Communications & Community Engagement Amanda Bowie, MSM. “We’re looking forward to connecting with the fans and telling them about the Bayhealth services that are right in their backyard or available to them when they’re visiting.”

Located at the corner of Hudson Road and Rt. 9 in Milton, Bayhealth Total Care opened in July and is home to the State’s first hybrid emergency and urgent care center. It also offers walk-in lab, X-ray, and EKG; ultrasound, echocardiogram, and CT by appointment; as well as primary and specialty care clinician offices. Visit to learn more.

Bayhealth’s focus on community health and combatting social determinants of health is also front and center with this partnership.

“We’re also proud to support an event that promotes physical health as well as the pursuit of higher education,” continued Bowie. “Both things only point to a healthier community overall and that is and will continue to be a huge focus of ours as we further enhance our population health and community engagement efforts in the coming year.”

“Slam Dunk to the Beach is so excited to have Bayhealth as our presenting sponsor for this year’s event,” shared Chairman Dr. Matthew Robinson. “We welcome the opportunity to generate awareness of Bayhealth’s new facility and of all the great services Bayhealth provides to promote the health and well-being of the good people of Sussex County.”

As a regional healthcare leader, Bayhealth looks forward to joining Slam Dunk to the Beach in welcoming teams and elite players from across the country as well as thousands of local fans.
