WNBA Chicago Sky renews partnership with the University of Chicago

Claire Wallace -  

The WNBA team Chicago Sky and the University of Chicago Medicine have renewed their partnership through the 2024 season. 

The partnership began in 2018, and it names the health system as the team's official medical provider and a major sponsor. 

UChicago Medicine provides the team with orthopedic care, sports medicine, women's health and primary care. 

Aravind Athiviriaham, MD, Holly Benjamin, MD, and Brendon Ross, DO, serve as the official team physicians. 

"As part of UChicago Medicine's orthopedic team, we're excited to continue our partnership with the Chicago Sky as the team's official medical provider," Dr. Athiviraham said in a July 20 press release. "Just as we use innovative approaches to help all patients with injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation, we look forward to continuing to help the Sky's elite athletes perform at their best levels."

The UChicago Medicine team has helped several players since 2018, including rehabilitating player Candace Parker's ankle and addressing player Allie Quigley's knee injury.
