COLUMBUS, Ohio - Chiller Ice Rinks and OhioHealth today announce the new "OhioHealth Chiller Ice Rink" name and logo, which will be used at four central Ohio Chiller locations through the 2015-16 National Hockey League season.
A multi-year marketing partnership announced last year by the Columbus Blue Jackets and OhioHealth included the naming sponsorship of all central Ohio Chiller locations. The naming sponsorship also extends to Chiller’s fifth facility, the OhioHealth Ice Haus, located in Nationwide Arena, which was unveiled to the public late last year.
"To be aligned with a first-class healthcare provider and community leader such as OhioHealth is something we're very proud of," said Wendy Herb, general manager of OhioHealth Chiller Ice Rinks. "Their partnership endorses and supports our commitment to providing outstanding programs and service to our customers."
The new OhioHealth Chiller logo maintains the Chiller's colors and overall design features while incorporating the OhioHealth brand. The logo's color and design also reference the rinks' relationship with the Columbus Blue Jackets while maintaining elements of Chiller's 18-year history.
In addition to the new name and logo, the rinks will undergo interior and exterior signage updates in the coming months. And although it will take some time, both organizations are excited to see the results of a closer partnership.
"Extending our partnership with the Columbus Blue Jackets to include this new partnership with the Chillers is an important part of reaching into the community with our message of health and wellness," said Laura McCoy, vice president of Marketing and Communications, OhioHealth. "More than a million hockey players, skaters and family members come through the Chillers every year and this is a wonderful way for us to reach out to them about how to stay healthy and active."
Rink locations and official names are OhioHealth Ice Haus (Nationwide Arena), OhioHealth Chiller Dublin, OhioHealth Chiller Easton, OhioHealth Chiller North (Lewis Center) and OhioHealth Chiller Ice Works (Worthington).
