OrthoIndy Partners with Verizon IndyCar Driver Pippa Mann
OrthoIndy is excited to announce its recent partnership with Verizon IndyCar Driver, Pippa Mann.
OrthoIndy has provided orthopedic care for the racing community for years. Statistics show that women are the primary healthcare decision makers in a household; therefore, it was important to OrthoIndy to align with a female athlete in the Indianapolis community. Pippa Mann is a strong female athlete in a male-dominated profession, who has proved you can do anything you set your mind to.
“As a patient of OrthoIndy I was thrilled at the idea of partnering with OrthoIndy,” said Pippa Mann. “OrthoIndy is the place the pro-athletes trust. Whatever sport we play, when we have broken bones, or orthopedic issues, getting them resolved not only so we can live our lives comfortably, but so that we can perform again at the highest levels of our abilities after surgery or treatment is exceptionally important to us. OrthoIndy staff are not only the best in the business in terms of clinical care, but after treating and working with so many pro-athletes, they understand the psychology of not only wanting to get better, but wanting to be able to return to competition as quickly as possible too.”
Pippa drove an IndyCar for the first time in March of 2011, and then qualified for her first Indianapolis 500 in May of that year. She was the eighth woman in history, and the first British female, to start the 500-mile race. Over the following seasons she has started the race four more times, and is currently the second fastest female driver in history at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a fastest qualifying lap speed of just below 230mph.
In 2016, Pippa competed in her fifth start at the Indianapolis 500, running as high as 8th place during the race before finishing in 18th place.
“The physicians, nurses and employees of OrthoIndy are excited to partner with Pippa,” said Jane Keller, CEO of OrthoIndy. “Pippa is passionate about giving back to the Indianapolis community we serve. We are proud to partner with her.”
